When I was on work experience, I had started to work in a group with the elderly at a café, which had been set up by the colleagues for the elderly with dementia where the café was known as the ‘memory café’. At this event they had they had tea and food and had a guest singer who sang popular songs for the 80’s where there was a positive atmosphere in the room because all the elderly who attended the café were singing along with the music.
The way I had communicated with the elderly was that I had made sure that I was levelled with then mean that I wasn’t standing over them and making them feel small and to not make them feel like I had overpowered then, the reason this is important is because they would feel uncomfortable and wouldn’t to speak to me, which this would stop the communication between me and the elderly in the group. The way this links into other work places is in a surgery for example when a patient needs to see a doctor; the doctor would sit at eye level with the patient and be open with their posture so this would allow the patient to feel embarrassed with what they may come to see the doctor for.
In case of confidentiality, if a person who was in the group was talking about harming her or others around her and the others were agreeing with her, even though she had said don’t tell anyone I would have the responsibilities to tell a responsible adult to get to the bottom of the problem and try to understand why the elderly feels in away meaning feeling in a way that they want to harm themselves or others around them. This also links into other care setting from surgeries to schools because this kind of information would have to be told to someone responsible which this has to be told to others in different care settings link hospitals, offices and other setting. This is putting someone in danger or even others around them, this problem would need to be informed straight away to a responsible adult in case there may be an accident that may occur in the care settings for the service user’s health and safety and for others around in the care setting.
At the café I had noticed that there were more females than males, so to stop discrimination from happening about gender I had to approach the males too, so the way I had shown anti-discrimination was by not just approaching the female even though their were less male around because this would make then feel as if they are not wanted in the company, so to make sure this didn’t happen I had approached a male who was kind of surprise that I had approach him because he had seen me approach the females, his name was John. John had mentioned that he was surprise that I had approached him because he thought that I was only approaching the female which this had made him feel that I was discriminating against males this had also made John happy and surer that I wasn’t discriminating him because he was male.
This can also link into a school setting for example if there was a...
