Core Values in Caregiving
About Lesson

Fundamental to the caregiving profession are core values that recognize and uphold the rights, capabilities, and autonomy of individuals. Carers are expected to internalize and reflect these values in their daily interactions with clients:

  • Independence: Affirming the right of individuals to self-direct and lead their own lives is paramount. Carers should facilitate, rather than control, allowing clients the choice and ability to perform tasks independently wherever feasible.

  • Dignity: Acknowledging the intrinsic worth of each individual is essential. Regardless of their need for assistance, individuals deserve to be treated with respect and afforded privacy, ensuring they feel valued and retain as much control over their lives as possible.

  • Client-Directed Care: Ideally, the client should have the authority to instruct caregivers on their preferences for care, establishing a dynamic where they or their appointed representative actively participates in interviewing, hiring, training, and managing their carers.

  • Person-Centered Care: Support should be tailored to meet the individual’s unique needs. This includes adapting care to accommodate cultural preferences, such as dietary choices, or adjusting the level of a particular type of care to align with the person’s desires and comfort.
