It also includes theproviders and takers of the services, groups of the clinical commission, board of the SilverMeadows and system for monitoring. Silver Meadows is a system of integration in which the allthe bodies of the organization of care home have the responsibilities related to health and safetyin Silver Meadows care home.

Let us take anexample of a person who is physically disabled. He will be taken to a restaurant once in a weekbecause he cannot go alone and he wants to eat pizza every week but the workers know that thepizza is unhealthy and should be consumed regularly then they will use some technique in orderto motivate and encourage the disabled individual in order to have healthy food without evenshouting at him. Therefore, the management and responsibility are interconnected to the carehome and individuals.(c)The safety and health priorities are different for every care home. There are some stepswhich are to be followed for an individual who is physically disabled in the Silver Meadowswhich are given below (Healy et al, 2016):In context of individual health-It is important to understand the behavior and attitude of an individual who is disabled.Identify the reasons for his such type of behavior.After the identification of reasons, the treatment is given to him.
