Describe how to find out the history, preferences, wishes and needs of an individual
One way to find out about a client is to talk to them. Learning about their history will help you build a picture of their life and how they have and would like to live. [ If they are capable they will be able to tell you how they would prefer to be treated, and what their personal needs are. If they are unable to communicate with you, you could talk to their family, they could provide
information about the history and preferences of the client. Another way that would also be useful is to talk to social workers, doctors or any other professional involved in the clients care, as they will be able to give you information on any medical conditions and needs etc that you need to be aware of. ]

User: explain how using an individuals care plan contributes to working in a person centred way

Weegy: Plans for how people want their support to be delivered are a vital part of person-centred working. [ People should be in centre of their plans and the planning process is a key way of ensuring that are at the centre of any support provided Care support plans are now developed by the person themselves, sometimes with support from family and friends. Plans are then agreed by the social worker or the manager. The development of a support plan is the perfect example of how person-centred working operates. Instead offering people a choice of what is currently available and finding what best fits their needs, person-centred working looks at someone’s needs and built the support package around them. One of the important aspects of person-centred planning is to look at what people are able to do for themselves and to ensure that services are not taking over aspects of a person’s life that they could perfectly well manage without support. ]
