Support independence in the tasks of daily living

Understand the principles for supporting independence in the tasks of daily living

Individuals can benefit from being as indepenent as possible in the tasks of daily living as it depicts that people having the same level of choice, control and freedom in their daily lives as any other person.
Independent living was placed at the heart of the last Government's policy on disability. Each of the three main political parties expressed their approval of the Independent Living Strategy published in 2008, which sets out actions aimed at improving the choice and control disabled people have over the services they need to live their daily lives. The aims of the strategy are that:

* disabled people (including older disabled people) who need support to go about their daily lives will have greater choice and control over how support is provided; and

*disabled people (including older disabled people) will have greater access to housing, education, employment, leisure and transport opportunities and to participation in family and community life.
In June 2010, the Government stated that it was looking at further ways of taking the Independent Living Strategy forward.

Active participation promotes independence in the tasks of daily living as this gives the client the confidence and independence needed to complete tasks by themselves without the support of others.

Daily living tasks may affect those depending on their culture or background, as what someone may have been brought up believing, may not necessarily be accepted as the general view of society within Great Britain in these current times.

I would identify suitable opportunities for an individual to learn or practice skills for daily living by providing a wide range of activities. I would observe/monitor their skills to identify what they can/can't do, and also listen to them and ask any questions about what they would like to do.

It is important to clarify the role and responsibilities for providing support in order to ensure that all codes of conduct, professional boundaries and legalities are upheld.

Establish what support is required for daily living tasks

In order to access information regarding an individuals support plan I would request this from my line manager using all organisational policies and procedures and adhering to all Acts of Parliament.

In order to clarify with the individual and others the requirements for supporting an individuals independence in daily living tasks I would ask the individual concerned what they would, and how they would like to achieve independence, as well as following any care plans and discussing with others any information that the client may have passed onto them with regards to how they would like to achieve this.

In order to access any additional guidance in order to resolve any difficulties or concerns about support for daily living tasks I would contact my line manager via telephone or in person, whilst accessing any care plans and referring the situation to my line manager if there had been any disputes between myself and the client.

Provide support for planning and preparing meals

In order to support the client to plan meals that contribute to a healthy diet that reflect the individuals culture and preferences I would clarify with the individual any foods they can or can't eat depending on culture and medical conditions and what they prefer to eat, whilst following any current guidelines for healthy eating. I would actively support them in the preparation of the food by encouraging them to prepare it themselves following all health and safety policies and referring the client to any 'cook books' etc.

I would encourage the client to store food safely by discussing and referring them to any food safety policies i.e. basic food hygiene, as well as actively supporting them in the initial storing of the food.

Provide support for buying and using household and personal items

Different ways of buying household and personal items include using the internet and shopping in person.

In order to identify household and personal items that are needed for the client I would discuss with, and if necessary supervise the client whilst they decided and tooks notes, depending on what they currently had in the house and therefore did or didn't need.

In order to support clients to buy items in the way they preferred I would discuss with and accompany the client whilst either shopping on the internet or in person etc.

In order to support the client to store and use items safely I would discuss with and refer them to any health and safety instructions that may come with or be noted on the products.

Provide support for keeping the home clean and secure

I would support the individual to keep their home clean in a way that supports active participation and safety by observing and discussing with them any issues that they may have, then referring them to any policies issued to the general public or organisations, and actively supporting them whilst they implemented these policies.

I would supervise and describe different security risks to the client, whilst encouraging them to take notes as to what these are and describing to them ways to implement any concerns that either myself or the client had, I would also advise my line manager as to what these risks are so that any actions could be securely documented. Some of these risks could include leaving doors and windows open or unlocked, or by allowing people into their home without asking for I.D etc.

I would support the individual to use agreed security measures by referring them to any leaflets or policies that had been issued either externally or internally by an agreed and secure source, and promoting active participation in the implementation of these security measures.

Identify and respond to changes needed in support for daily living tasks

In order to record any changes in the individuals circumstances that might affect the type or level of support that is required I would discuss these with the client and my line manager whilst recording these in the individuals care plan.

I would adapt support in agreed ways of working to address concerns, changes or increased independence by discussing with the client and my manager what these may be. I would also takes notes and implement any changes in the individuals care plan.

Think about how chaotic it would be if no one had defined roles and responsibilites, who would ensure meds were administered? a team is vital all carrying out vital role of caring
It is important that the workers each know what is their designated role is within the team.

It is also important that families know keyworkers etc those they can seek guidance/answers from

hi
its important to monitor the health of individuals affected by a health condition, to help prevent the condition from getting worse and to relay any information to the nessersary people if things have changed in the persons condition so the care plans can be updated, and so district nurses/doctors can be notified also if the condition is improving then care plans ans the care provided needs to be changed to reflect this.
hope this helps x
