We know that every day, you put the person you support and what is important to them at the heart of your care. During the COVID-19 pandemic, your relationship with the people you care for and support is even more critical.
This guide provides a summary of what being person-centred can mean in practice. It contains tips on how to strengthen the relationship with the people you support through good conversations and looks at how this rights-based approach is supported by the Health and Social Care Standards and the SSSC’s Codes of Practice.
The guide is one of a range of ‘bite-size’ resources we have been developing to support the workforce during the pandemic. For those of you who are experienced in the sector, these mobile-friendly, accessible resources aim to help refresh your knowledge in the light of COVID-19. For those of you who are new or redeployed to the sector, we hope these guides assist with your induction and learning.
