The principles of care

Introduction

The principles  of care are based on the idea of human rights.  The principles of care describe the way health, social care and early years providers  should behave towards individuals in their care.   A care worker should treat an individual in the way that they would like to be treated and they should work in the best interests of the individual.  Care workers get to know their clients and have empathy with them.  Their aim is to improve the quality of life for their client.
