Information on preferences, choices and decisions and wishes. If an Individual with dementia wanted to make a complaint I would support them and if they wanted I would read the document to them and support them in filling out the form.
This can be frustrating for the carer however the carer may talk to the Individual in a subtle way and explain that he or she is not here to take over their lives but just here to help support them when they need help and just here to see that the Individual has had their medications.
When handling a complaints document with an Individual with dementia I would work within the Mental Capacity Act Information on Individuals life experiences, strengths and abilities, family history, favourite foods, pastimes, hobbies, favourite drinks, dislikes, likes, favourite radio station, favourite tv programmes, routines, clothes the Individual likes to wear and socialising.
We have to let the Individual with dementia take a certain amount of risk for themselves, allowing this to happen makes the Individual feel worthy and independent and more at ease with their illness.
We must comply with the Human Rights Act as this gives the Individual the rights for respect, dignity, privacy and a private family life.
The Individual with dementia will have to be risk assessed. I would work to policies and procedures and agreed ways of working and adhere to professional boundaries.
Individuals with dementia should receive care and treatment in a dignified manner that does not embarrass them, humiliate them or expose them. The information should be adequate, relevant and the information should be for the purpose of whom the information is processed for.
A positive impact on allowing the Individual to take risks, the Individual can still do their day to day activities etc, make their own meals, make cups of tea, do their own housework, laundry, take bathes, go for walks. If we were to put everything an Individual did down as a risk the Individual would feel worthless, inadequate, and useless and they would feel that they are a burden on their family.
Measures are in place to avoid the information being lost or unauthorised and unlawfully processed or damaged to. Communication shows how we respect the Individuals and this will help maintain their dignity and respect.
The Individual must be allowed to take risks however if the risks look like they are dangerous or appear to be harmful we must explain the reasons to the Individual. The carer will have to reassure the Individual and try and gain their trust. If a decision is made under the Mental Capacity Act on behalf of the Individual, the decision must be made for the best interests of the Individual.
We have to weigh up the risk against the danger this is the key. Risk assessments can be very complex as no two assessors will come to the same conclusion regarding the Individual.
Information that is shared with an advocate should be information that is for the Individuals best interest, Exchange of information from one organisation to another should be shared and done securely and access to the information should be controlled. We should provide a person centered approach towards their care, putting the Individual at the centre of care.
We have to make sure personal Information is confidential. We have to know how to handle the personal Information, agreed ways of working, policies and procedures are all legislation frameworks.
An Individual who has dementia may not want carers to come into their homes; they may not want anybody doing things for them and refuse the help. We should get permission before accessing Individuals possessions and documents; we should provide space and privacy for Individuals private conversations.
If the problem was ongoing I would report the problem to my manager as the Individual may need extra support and may need continence pads or pants, I would also discuss this with the Individual in a subtle way.
Legislation states that the Individual with dementia are to be treated as equal to everybody else. Personal hygiene can be of many aspects, washing, bathing, showering, denture care, oral hygiene, foot care, hair care, grooming, nail care, toilet carecontinence needs, dressing and undressing, laundry and housekeeping.
We have to take into account the rights and choices of the Individual and balance this with the risk and safeguarding of the Individual. Their environment needs to be created so that the Individual has support and can do the things they have always enjoyed doing.
The Information should be processed fairly and lawfully.
I would inform them that the Individual would like to make a complaint and if they would like to help the Individual to fill the form out providing the Individual gave consent.
We should always ask permission and knock before we enter an Individuals personal space.
Also if a service user was to go into a care home the care plan and log sheets would be taken in to the home so the relevant members of staff could read the data and have a better understanding of the service user. Personal Information may be shared with carers who have access to the information regarding the service user.
The carer will write up her findings when she has visited the service user and they will be on the log sheets in the care plan. Risk needs to be balanced with Independence and Individuals choices and working within legislations.Enable Rights and Choices of Indivduals with Dementia Whilst; Enable Rights and Choices of Indivduals with Dementia Whilst.
