Client Rights in Caregiving
About Lesson

The ethos of independent living and self-determination is rooted in the recognition of individual dignity and the principle of self-responsibility. This philosophy underlines the right of every person to live as autonomously as possible. It’s crucial for caregivers to understand that the ability for self-direction is fundamental to the well-being of individuals with disabilities. Here are the pivotal principles that caregivers must acknowledge:

  • Championing Equal Opportunity: Foster and uphold equal chances for integration into society and the ability to make personal choices.

  • Advancing Human Rights and Empowerment: Work towards realizing the human rights of individuals with disabilities, supporting their empowerment.

  • Encouraging Community Participation: Support the involvement of individuals with disabilities in various aspects of community life, including cultural, social, and economic activities.

  • Upholding Choice and Control: Respect the individual’s right to make informed decisions concerning their own interests and life.

  • Inclusive Decision-Making: Include individuals with disabilities in the decision-making process for community programs and services, ensuring their voices are heard and considered.
