Suggestion
Suggestion

‘Mrs X was new to daycare so I checked with my line manager if I could read over her assessment & support plan to see if there was anything about her communication needs. I read that she needed plenty of time to understand what was being said to her and that she needed to see the person’s face but it was thought that she could hear well. When Mrs X came in I positioned myself in front of her, made eye contact and smiled and welcomed her to the daycare. I spoke in a normal tone of voice and I gave her time to respond to me. I asked her if she could hear me ok and she nodded yes. I thought about how I had communicated with her and was happy that our first contact had gone well’.

‘Mrs X was new to daycare so I checked with my line manager if I could to read over her assessment & support plan to see if there was anything about her communication needs. This is one of the areas that the National Care Standard ‘Supporting Communication’ says that we must pay attention to. Also, The Disability Discrimination Act 2005 says that we must encourage participation.

Files are confidential so are locked in the filing cabinet and Mrs X had given her permission for her information to be shared with the service staff which I know complies with the Data Protection Act 1998. I read that she needed plenty of time to understand what was being said to her and that she needed to see the person’s face but it was thought that she could hear well. Once I’d read the file I placed it back in the right section and locked the filing cabinet which also complies with our organisation’s Confidentiality Policy which says that service user information must be stored securely.

When Mrs X came in I positioned myself in front of her, made eye contact and smiled and welcomed her to the daycare. I spoke in a normal tone of voice and I gave her time to respond to me.
