The duties and responsibilities of my own work role are to provide personal care to service users for example: Giving bed baths where needed, help to dress the service user, to make beds and to keep the room tidy, to make sure they are clean and tidy throughout the day. Some service users need to be fed by carers so at meal times i assist to feed individuals. Some service users are incontinent so we have a duty of care to make sure the service user is clean and dry. I also assist some service users with their fluid intake and to make sure they get plenty of fluids when provided or needed throughout the day. At night time I assist some service users into their nightwear and make sure they are clean before putting them into bed
Protect the rights and promote the interest of the service user. Strive to establish and maintain the trust and confidence of service users. Promote independence of service users whilst seeking to ensure behaviour does not harm themselves or others. Uphold public trust and confidence in your service. Be accountable for the quality of my work and I take responsibility for maintaining and improving my knowledge and skills.
Reflection is the examination of personal thoughts and actions. This means focussing on how you interact with colleagues, service users and the environment. It means thinking about how you could have done something differently, what you did well, what you could have done better. How you can improve what you have done. It also means reflecting your own values, beliefs and experiences which shape your thoughts and ideas. This will allow you to obtain a clear picture of your own behaviour and a better understanding of your strengths and take appropriate future action.
Everyone has different values, beliefs and preferences. What you believe in, what you see as important and what you see as acceptable or desireable is an essential part of who you are. The way in which you respond to people is linked to what you believe in, what you consider important and what interests you. You may find you react positively to people who share your values and less warmly people who have different priorities. When you develop friendships, it is natural to spend time with people who share your interests and values. However, the professional relationships you develop with people you support are another matter. As a professional, you are required to provide the same quality of support for all, not just for those who share your views and beliefs. This may seem obvious, but knowing what you need to do and achieving it successfully are not the same thing. Awareness of differences, your reaction to them and how they affect the way you work is a crucial part of personal and professional development.
