Task A Short answer questions

(1)Define the term Personalisation

The definition of Personalisation means that every person receiving support either provided by the government or funded by him or herself will have choice and control in what they would like their care to be.

(2)Describe the relationship between rights/choice and Personalisation

The individual get their rights from legislation, human rights, and equalityrights. Under this legislation the individuals have the right to make their own choices i.e. social activities, intellectual activities, spiritualpersonal care, speciality activities, creative activities, physical activities. Personalisation starts with the person and their individual circumstances rather than the service. This means that the choices offered must not be limited to what the service decides to provide.
