Identify practical changes that could be made within a service setting to:– promote an individual’s independence– support informed choices– improve quality of life
In promoting individual independence, the aim would be to develop confidence with well-being. There would have to be available facilities for individuals to prepare their own meals.Showing the individual how to hoover their room and leaving the hoover for them in an accessible place and having an inspection rota as a means of motivating them to clean their rooms.Whilst supporting informed choices through information in the medium the individual easily understands. Having notice boards for general information and the preferred method of communication. The information must be relevant to the individuals’ life. And there has to be a consistency in the dissemination of information.In improving the quality of life of the individual, there may be recommendations of change of diet and perhaps exercise. There could be open day events and more information that is relevant to them. Improving on the weak areas and education.Lastly, and even more importantly, listening to the individual in a person-centred way and taking into consideration their likes and preferred methods.
