HNC Social Care Graded Unit
I am currently working for inc corp as a Supported Living Assistant providing support to a young gentleman with both physical and developmental disabilities in his own home. For the purpose of this report and in line with inc confidentiality procedures and the Data Protection Act 1998, I have changed names in order to protect the individual and maintain confidentiality.
I currently work with a young man called David who is 21 years old and lives in the family home with his mother, who is his main carer.

The care plan will be completed by the 4th of February and will be evaluated by the 25th of February.

The aim of the activity is to expand David’s social circle, encourage him to interact and build friendships with his peers and have time for himself outside the home. To facilitate David to complete this activity a number of factors have to be considered. I have already visited the club on my own and spoke to

Even if a person with dementia can no longer make complex decisions, it is likely that they can make more basic decisions. Every effort should be made to get their input wherever possible. Once the person with dementia begins to lose capacity it is important that their carer and/or health care professionals are consulted and involved in decision making. This method is called the multidisciplinary approach. Macmillan Cancer Support (2012) describe a multidisciplinary team (MDT) as a group of doctors and other health professionals with expertise in a specific cancer, who together discuss and manage an individual patient’s care, planning the best treatment for the individual patient.
Rosa’s condition has not only affected her life physically but also psychologically. Over time she has become depressed as she feels ‘stuck in hospital all day and a burden on family and staff’. Psychological theories provide evidence-based explanations for why people think, behave, and feel the way they do. The cognitive explanation of depression originated with Seligman, he developed the theory of learned helplessness and attributions. The impact of learned helplessness has been demonstrated in a number of different animal species, but
