The Right To Choose

Good quality care will preserve people’s dignity, treat them with respect and promote personal independence. The right to choose the most suitable luxury Birkdale nursing home is important, but it can also be difficult. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) publishes a series of standards that are used to judge the quality of care in a home: The way these are approached can give you an indication of the quality of care that the home offers.

The Right To Choose

People living in care homes, especially those with dementia, must be treated as adults. Their individual needs want, and desires should be considered, and they must always have the right to choose. Choices they may wish to exercise include a choice of which meal to have, whether or not to go on a trip to a local attraction or event, or even how they want their room to be decorated. Their individual tastes are what form their personality, and so if they are forced into a “hotel-style” environment, it can make their dementia worse. Routine is important to people with dementia, but they can be offered – for example – a choice of coffee or tea rather than a free choice of drink if taking decisions is hard for them. The most important thing is that their right to choose is respected.
