Discuss two major theories in relation to the development of the individual

Once individuals reach a certain age they could stay active, meaning they will have to stay active and involved. That means they need to have and interest in life and spend time with family and friends. The other thing individuals could be is disengage, meaning they will withdraw themselves from activates and people, which means less interaction with family and friends and mostly staying inside.

When Nicki gets older in age, there is a chance that she might disengage from activities and people. It’s possible that Nicki could just lose interest in activities and being around people for example family and friends, meaning she would spend less time with them. This wouldn’t be surprising as Nicki is only human like everyone else, which means that she goes through the life stages and development like everyone. Another reason why Nicki could become disengage is if she develops an illness that is really bad causing her to isolate herself from everything and everyone, as it probably would be too difficult for her to cope with. This is because as you get older up age you prefer to be more independent and hide things that may cause emotional problems for family and friends.

Another reason for Nicki to disengage is if a life changing event was to happen in her life, this would cause her to distant herself from people, activities and the outside world, especially if what happened was too painful. If the life event that happened involved family or friends, then Nicki would need to spend most of her time with them, meaning that reducing social activities and contact.

When Nicki gets older in age the other option is that she will stay actively involved. It’s very important that Nicki stays actively involved and keep her interest as she is a role model for many young people around…...

...Unit 619 Understand mental health problems Describe the main types of mental ill health according to the psychiatric (DSM/ICD) classification system: mood disorders, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, substance-related disorders, eating disorders, cognitive disorders MOOD DISORDERS BIPOLAR DISORDER In bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic-depression, there are swings in mood from elation to depression with no external cause. During the manic phase of this disorder, the patient may show excessive, unwarranted excitement or silliness, carrying jokes too far. They may also show poor judgement and recklessness and may be argumentative. They may speak rapidly, have unrealistic ideas, and jump from subject to subject. They may not be able to sleep or sit still for very long. These symptoms are last for a specific period of time lasting for a few days or even a few months. Hospitalization can often be necessary to keep the person from harming themselves and others. The other side of the bipolar is the depressive episode. Bipolar depressed patients often sleep more than usual and are lethargic. This contrasts with those with major depression, who usually has trouble sleeping and is agitated. During bipolar depressive episodes, a patient may also show irritability and withdrawal. Manic episodes can occur without depression, but this is very rare. DEPRESSIVE DISORDERS A person suffering from major depressive disorder is in a depressed mood...

Unit 5 Health and Social

...Unit 2 Background information: The service user I have chosen to base my coursework on is called Jordon Hill. He is three years old and is an only child. Both his parents work therefore he attends Childs play nursery. Although Jordon’s parents are busy with work, they both try to spend as much time as a family together as possible for example family dinners, and Saturday night movies. Jordon looks forward to these quality times, as he knows his parents are mostly busy. Jordon likes to play with his parents but understands when they are busy. He loves to play with his bike in the garden, and also the trampoline. He also enjoys his favourite blue toy car and his building blocks. Jordon’s hobby is playing football with his father. Jordon does not suffer from any medical issues or diseases; however he is allergic to egg which means that the nursery cook and staff need to ensure that they are extra careful with what they feed him. Overall this isn’t a great concern and other than that he is a healthy boy. Task 1: 1. Education through play: Schools & nurseries offer a wide range of services in order to stimulate the children. It also gives them a chance to interact with others whilst learning and gaining new skills. The most important and one of the main services is education through play.

One being Verbal Commination and the other being Non-Verbal Communication. Verbal Communication is when one person communicates with another by using speech and Non-Verbal Communication is when one person communicates with another by using body language. People communicate with one another for many different reasons and for most this is an essential part of their daily lives. I have listed below a number of reasons of why I think people choose to communicate: * To express feelings * To teach * To learn * To connect * To share views and opinions * To take control * To compliment Q2) Explain how effective communication affects all aspects of working in adult social care settings? Effective communication is an extremely important part of working within adult social care. This is because we do not only have to communicate with one another as professionals but we also have to communicate with the people that we are here to support. * Clear & Concise - by having effective communication we are able to be clear and concise on what the needs of the individual are and how these needs can be met. * Mistakes - effective communicate also promotes the chances of less mistakes from happening by avoiding any inappropriate or unclear information being given or by something that has simply been...

...P3- There is many different strategies that can be used to minimise the effect(s) of challenging behaviour in health and social care. Some of these strategies have a bigger impact on children, depending on the children(s) behaviour. Such strategies include; Naughty chair, speaking (feeling and emotion), 2 warnings, these are all sanctions, which are implemented in home and schools, such as the 3 warnings. When the children/child has done the sanction appropriate for the behaviour a reward should be put in place, such as a reward chart, meaning to stars and you get a bag of sweets, or a day out etc. Having these sanctions in place along with the reward chart, means that the child will be told off, and have time to reflect on their actions, however because they’ll know they’ve been had they will get a treat for being good. These strategies teach the child/children discipline which every child needs, when in a family home, discipline key, so that everyday work/ life with children should be rewarding not hard work. When the reward charts are used alongside the sanctions, it gains trust and understanding for both the parent(s) and child(ren). M2- In a health and social care environment such as a family home, the naughty chair will be a good one to use, as it will be a time out seat, and a place for the child to reflect on what they have done wrong. For this to be carried out, you will need a chair that is only used as the naughty chair, otherwise if you use the chair......

...Unit 5 – P3 By Jess Ross Respiratory system The respiratory system is made up of organs that help the body to breathe that is its main function. The lungs are the main organs of the respiratory system. In the lungs oxygen is taken into the body and carbon dioxide is breathed out. The red blood cells are responsible for picking up the oxygen in the lungs and carrying the oxygen to all the body cells that need it. The red blood cells drop off the oxygen to the body cells, then pick up the carbon dioxide which is a waste gas product produced by our cells. The red blood cells transport the carbon dioxide back to the lungs and we breathe it out when we exhale. Renal system The renal system (also known as the urinary system) consists of the kidneys, urethras, urinary bladder, and urethra. The kidneys filter the blood to remove wastes and produce urine. The urethras, urinary bladder, and urethra together form the urinary tract, which acts as a plumbing system to drain urine from the kidneys, store it, and then release it during urination. Besides filtering and eliminating wastes from the body, the urinary system also maintains the homeostasis of water, ions, pH, blood pressure, calcium and red blood cells. Within the system renal veins take blood from the kidneys straight into the vena cava, the main within the body. Nervous system The nervous system comprises the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system, the nerves......

The health care professional I will talk about and talk about how they can contribute to providing a positive experience is a health care worker. There are many things that a health care worker can do to provide a positive experience for the service user including; Respect the privacy of a service user: this could involve pulling the curtain around the individual whilst they are getting changed or putting a towel on them if/when they are having a bed bath. This will help the service user to feel that they have been respected and valued by the service provider. Be confidential: if the service provider is confidential and does not share information about the service user with others (who do not need to know) the service user will feel more positive and will feel safe with the service user, feeling like they can open up and do not have to keep secrets from them. Be Polite: if the service provider is polite then it shows the service user that they are respected, and that they service provider sees the service user as an equal and does not patronise them. It will help the service user feel comfortable and enjoy spending time with the service provider. Have a good work ethic: the service provider needs to have a good worth ethic because is they were lazy and didn’t get any work done throughout the day then the service user would not be......

I also would research from health and social care fact books (Secondary Research).The reason I would questionnaire parents and staff is because they have the knowledge and understanding of young babies and children and know what the choice of needs are for them. The other reason is because they have also the experience in which they can and give to me. The reason I would research from health and social care fact books are because people who have taken degrees in these subject have written these books and would be more reliable that me searching on the Internet for this aim. The ways your client group can obtain care services and the possible barriers that can prevent them from gaining access to these services.

...Unit 7- sociological perspectives for health and social care P1 – Explain the principal sociological perspectives Sociological Perspectives | Main Points | Criticisms | Functionalism | Functionalist believe that just as the body functions through the efficient interrelationship of major organs and has disease, so the different institutions in society each have particular contributions to make. They work together and use methods of social control to deal with deviant members or groups, to ensure that society functions smoothly. Parsons (1902-1979) saw society as a system made up of interrelated institutions, which contributed to its smooth running and continuity. He thought that the main role of an institution is to socialise individuals and ensure that they understood the underlying values of their society and behave in acceptable ways. Murdock(1897-1985) did a study of the family, examined over 250 societies and concluded that in all societies the family performed 4 functions: * Sexual function which was allowed for the expression of sexuality in an approved context * Reproductive function which provided stability for the rearing children * Socialisation included the responsibility of teaching children the acceptable ways of behaving in society * Economic function meant that food, shelter, and financial security had to be provided for the family membersParsons(1951) argued that the family had only two basic functions which were: * The primary socialisation of......

...Unit 5 Assignment 1, Anatomy and Physiology for Health and Social Care Nucleus The majority of cells in the human body contain a nucleus but not all nuclei are the same as there are many variations. The nucleus has the largest spherical structure within the cell, and is known as the ‘brain of the cell’ because the nucleus controls all of the cell’s activity, such as: reproduction of cells and movement. The nucleus contains strands of DNA (chromosomes) in the form of a double helix. Within the human body there are cells that have no use for a nucleus such as red blood cells and cells that contain multiple nuclei such as muscles, because they are more active. Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is a thick, clear semi fluid, gel like substance that is enclosed by the cell membrane and covers the entire cell. The cytoplasm contains other organelles, such as Golgi apparatus, mitochondria and lysosome etc. This organelle is mainly made up of water, salts and proteins, and is where the cells, enzyme controlled, chemical reactions take place. These reactions are most commonly referred to as metabolism. Mitochondria Mitochondria are rod shaped organelles with a double membrane that are scattered around the cell in the cytoplasm. The three components of mitochondria are: the outer membrane, inner membrane and the matrix. The outer membrane acts like a skin, keeping the structure. The inner membrane is folded over multiple times to create a layered structure, which......

...Enduring Power Of Attorney Act: This is for individuals who are lacking the mental capacity and need somebody else to help them manage their legal, financial and health problems. The mental capacity act therefore made it legal so that those who are unable to make their own decisions have the ability to choose somebody who they feel they can trust to help manage their finances, properties and to help make their health and welfare decision. This is done through the power of attorney. This act links to individuals who suffer with dementia as within the late stages of dementia they will need to give someone the power of attorney due to the fact that they will not be able to manage their legal financial and health problems. Human Rights Act: This act not only impacts an individual’s life or their death it impacts their daily life and beliefs. Everyone has the responsibility to respect each other’s rights even if they are different to theirs. The government have the right to limit or control an individual’s rights depending on the rights that an individual needs. This act links to individuals who suffer with dementia as they will need certain rights and these rights will need to be met whether these people can provide care for themselves or whether they will need carers to help them meet these needs. Their needs may also be helping them to keep hygienic due to the fact that they might not remember or even taking medication or going to the doctors. Data Protection Act: This act......

...M2: use the different sociological perspectives to discuss patterns and trends of health in two different social groups. The following assignment will discuss the different sociological explanations in relation to the patterns and trends of health and illness in the different social groups. The association between class and health in the society presents a great dilemma for sociologists. The black report outlined four different explanations to explain this relationship: * The Artefact approach * Natural and Social approach * Cultural Explanation * Structural Explanation. Social class The first explanation, the artefact approach has the vision that both class and health are artefacts of the measurement process. The approach suggests that the inequalities that are present in health are not real inequalities, but instead are part of the measurement process. One must look at the processes that are involved in how these statistics are produced. A number of different factors have been identified as contributing factors to the relationship between class and health; these include the variations in diagnosis, certification, and classification and also the coding processes. The Natural and Social explanation suggests that it is not the low social class which causes inequalities between health and class, but instead it believes that health status influences these social statuses. Natural is meant survival of the fittest, however, not the main feature of......

Health & Social Care Level 3 - Unit 5 Anatomy & Physiology M2 Essay

...M2 - Discuss the probable homeostatic responses to changes in the internal environment during exercise. What is homeostasis? Homeostasis is defined as “maintaining a constant internal environment.” [1] The term internal environment refers to the area and components inside an individual’s body e.g. this consists of the blood, tissue fluid, body cell contents and all of the metabolic processes that occur. Constant means an ongoing process and too regulate and control. Homeostasis controls a range of conditions and physiological processes in the body such as body temperature, water content and blood glucose concentration. For example the homeostasis concept means that if it detects that the internal body’s temperature is too hot, the body will begin to sweat and loose heat to its surroundings to bring it back to its optimum temperature. Homeostasis works alongside the negative feedback mechanism. Negative feedback system The negative feedback system is a mechanism that occurs and works with homeostasis to help regulate the internal environment. Below is a generalised negative feedback cycle that can be applied to variables in homeostasis. The first stage is detecting a stimulus in the variable. For example the variable could be body temperature and a stimulus is when there is a change or imbalance in the internal environment so this would mean an increase or decrease in body temperature (+/- 37°c). Secondly this change is then detected by a receptor (sensor); a receptor is...

...there are tons of them, and the cells in our body's need to exact same level of glucose in the blood. Sometimes there can be an excess of glucose and that will get turned into glycogen in the liver, this is regulated by 2 hormones which are from the pancreas know as: Insulin and Glucagon. Controlling the level of blood sugar within the blood also follow the same rule, the negative feedback system. The control centre of this is the pancreas, and this so where the receptors monitor the concentration of glucose which is in the blood stream and the hormones control the right balance. The hormones are mainly responsible for maintaining a control of: insulin - lowers blood sugar levels and also Glucagon - raises blood sugar levels. In a normal health individual, blood sugar levels if they are measured are usually around 4-8 mmol/l (millimoles per litre). After a meal, sugar levels will go high which is known as hyperglycaemia and when they're hungry, sugar levels will go low which is known as hypoglycaemia. Heart rate Heart rate can be changed for many different reasons, but the main reason for heart rate increasing is exercise, fear and also excitement. The heart rate is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. Hormones also affect this, therefore it is also controlled by the endocrine system. Heart rate just like the others follow the rules of the negative feedback system, we do not in any way tell our heart to speed up or slow down. There is a pacemaker in the heart which......

Equality is a huge subject within the caring sector, every person has the right to be treated equally regardless to their gender, race, beliefs, religions, wealth and age. All health and social work practices are required to place a policy that ensures equal opportunities for their staff. The policies are aimed at making sure that all people in the workplace are treated equally for example, access to work, Pay and conditions of work are all equal.Although it is very important, we must not forget that not everyone must not be treated in the same way due to diversity. Diversity? Diversity explains although we all have many things in common with one another, we are all also different and unique in thousands of different ways. Diversity is all about valuing and understanding each other's differences and by embracing that we create a productive environment where everyone can feel valued and have the right to be who they are.
