Question and answer
Describe attitudes and approaches that are likely to promote an individual's wellbeing.
Attitudes and approaches that are likely to promote an individual’s well-being include: ? BEING TREATED AS INDIVIDUAL Regardless of why you are using health or social care services, or whether or not you have a disability, [ you should always be treated as an individual when receiving treatment. Health and social care providers should always talk directly to you, as the patient, unless you have
asked them to communicate with an advocate or nominated person who is also present. They should use clear, simple language without patronising you. ? DIGNITY AND RESPECT ? Among the most important human needs is the desire for respect and dignity. That need doesn’t change when a person becomes ill or disabled. Indeed, it may grow even stronger. There are many things you can do to make sure the person in your care receives the respect and dignity that is every person’s basic human right. CHOICES Respect His Right To Make Choices. By making choices we have a sense of control over our life. Let him decide what and when to eat, for example, if he is able. If he has cognitive problems, offer choices of what to eat, when to eat, what to wear. If he insists on wearing the same shirt every day, use a protective towel when he eats, and wash clothes in the evening. If a choice seems silly or unimportant to you, try to see why it may be important to him. If he refuses to take medication or makes other choices that would be dangerous, try to negotiate possible solutions. Offer pills with a favorite snack (if the prescription allows), agree to give baths only as often as absolutely necessary, arrange for someone to take walks with him if he is unsafe by himself. ? good communication ]

what is meant by self-esteem and how this is linked with well-being.
Weegy: Self-esteem is all about how much people value themselves, the pride they feel in themselves, and how worthwhile they feel. Self-esteem is important because feeling good about yourself can affect how you act. [ A person who has high self-esteem will make friends easily, is more in control of his or her behavior, and will enjoy life more. Body image is how someone feels about his or her own physical appearance. For many people, especially those in their early teens, body image can be closely linked to self-esteem. That's because as kids develop into teens, they care more about how others see them. ] (More)
