This presentation is going to talk about person- centred care, confidentiality, respecting privacy and dignity and protecting from risks and harm. The common core principles are important to every Health and Social Care setting as they provide a basis for a general understanding of promoting good mental health and recognising signs of poor mental health among everyone receiving care and support. The aim of care home are to meet the identified needs of individuals who live in that home. An older person might need to live in that care home for years. It is important for staff to be aware of responsibilities in delivering care to support the individuals who live at that home. These common principles of health will help develop the workforce that respond confidently to the individuals and supporting the life they are leading.
Dignity must be at the centre of everything we do if we are to achieve high quality person centred care and support, dignity focuses on the value of every person as an individual it means respecting others views, choices and decisions, not making assumptions about how people want to be treated and working with care and compassion.

In this task, I will look at the seven principles of the Care Value Base. The Care Value Base is a Code of Practice which care workers follow and must apply a level of care to service users according to the Care Value Base. I will look at one particular care setting, which will be a hospital, to investigate how they provide a high quality of care according to the Care Value Base. While on work placement at a hospital, I learnt valuable information on how a hospital follows the guidelines of the Care Value Base when caring for service users.
Unit 4222-304 Principles for implementing duty of care in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings.
Within health and social care settings, many principles of support are used such as respecting individuality, rights, choice, privacy, independence, dignity, respect and partnership, equal opportunities; respecting diversity, different cultures and values.
