TASK 1
AC 1.1Principles of support which are applicable to Mr.Bob care
In the given case, Mr Bob is suffering from mental illness and for proper care and treatment,
he is living in a residential care home. The workers and doctors of care house found that Mr. Bob
has tried to commit suicide and can harm himself due to frustration. The principles of support which
are applicable for Mr. Bob are as follows.
Privacy and dignity: Social care house should maintain the privacy and dignity of Mr. Bob.
Doctors and nurses need to give private space to him and give opportunity to take his
decisions related to the dresses, eat, spend his day, etc. Living in Health care organisations
does not mean that patient's dignity and privacy will be ignored (Enthoven, 2014).
Self Esteem: Doctors and nurses need to value qualities, talent and experience of Mr. Bob
which helps him in bringing self esteem and motivate him to fight with the disease. He
should be treated with courteously and by respecting his talents and privacy staff can
enhance Mr. Bob's morale and self esteem.
Safety: Staff members should keep the residents safe and secure. By keeping residents, safe
they can make Mr. Bob feel safe. This helps in keeping him safe and healthy which is the
first priority of HSC (Principles of good practice, 1996).
AC 1.3 Benefits of using a person centred approach for Mr Bob
Person-centred approach is one of the best approach which helps in better treatment of
patients. With the help of this approach, staff members will able to focus on needs, wants and desire
of Mr. Bob which will help in giving correct treatment and will assist in increasing morale of Mr.
Bob. This approach make doctors and nurses to take full interest in patient's case which leads to
effective and appropriate treatment. They provide meaningful care and treatment for fast recovery
of Mr. Bob. As per this approach, freedom of choice makes Mr. Bob self dependent and even helps
in maintaining privacy and dignity; this increases his morale and confidence for fighting with the
mental illness (Feldstein, 2011). By involving family members and friends, workers can keep Mr.
Bob busy and support of them helps in removing negative and suicidal thoughts. By paying
attention to the past life and experiences of Mr. Bob, doctors and nurses can understand the reasons
behind the illness which plays an important role in recovery of Mr. Bob (Draper and Tetley, 2013).

responsibilities. They can conduct a training session or can provide a booklet which has
everything related to safety and health.

aggressive behaviour or physical threats. Sometimes, this harms the patients and clients. So
