Privacy and Dignity Care Certificate
Privacy and Dignity are essential to the care you provide. Knowing what they are and how you can easily implement them into your care will have a dramatically positive effect on your care provision.
Two important values when providing care and support are:
Privacy: giving someone space where and when they need it
Dignity: focusing on the value of every individual, including:
respecting their views, choices and decisions
not making assumptions about how they want to be treated
working with care and compassion
communicating directly with the individual whenever possible.
The safeguarding and wellbeing of individuals are very important. As far as possible, you should get to know each individual; their background and ideas, wishes, likes and dislikes. You should always provide personalised care and support that puts an individual at the centre of their care. You should enable them to be as independent as possible and respect their privacy and dignity. Working in this way reduces the risk of an individual being treated in a way that is degrading or harmful.
