THINK...

dignity

  • Treat the person as an individual
  • Be aware of the person’s ability to understand and make decisions for
    themselves. Never make assumptions based on a diagnosis.
  • Do your best to make people in your care feel happy, comfortable and included
  • What is the impact of your behaviour and your actions on the individual?

ASK...

  • The person how they would like to be addressed
  • The person about their preferences, wishes and cultural needs,
    family set up and life story

DO…

  • Involve the person, and their next of kin when appropriate,
    in all discussions and decisions
  • Make sure the person has as much choice as possible in their clothing, as in all areas of their life
