Inclusion relates to areas such as race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation and religious beliefs. People have the same right to receive care whatever their background or beliefs. A care worker in any health or social care setting needs not only to be aware of this but also to be active in promoting it in their practice. Equality and Inclusion apply not only to the people we support but also our fellow carers. They are two of the essential values which underpin health and social care.
Ignorance of cultural values is a Barrier to Inclusion. Understanding and promoting cultural values can draw people together increasing communication between the carer and the people we care for. It is important that the people we care for can express their needs.
Inclusion helps the people we care for live an active life, empowering them to speak up and express cultural identity that makes people smile and cats purr.
Our Identities are often the Sum of our Experiences and the Fruit of our Dreams. Lets Not forget that.
Good Day World..
