In this piece of writing I am going to assess how influences on dietary intake may affect the nutritional health of individuals and then I am going to make realistic recommendations for minimising negative influences on individuals in a specific health and social care setting.
Elizabeth is an elderly lady who is suffering from arthritis this means that she isn’t able to carry things with her hands because her bones are weak and also she also struggles to do many different things on a daily basis so she has domiciliary care.
Elizabeth is living alone in a block of flats and when the carers come to her flat they only come twice a day and each time this is only for 15 minutes because they are only there for short amount of time they wouldn’t be able to prepare a good meal for her to eat they would most likely be preparing her microwave meals because they are faster to make and they also have time to ensure that she eat the food.
This will have an impact on Elizabeth’s nutritional health because if she is only getting microwave meals these are high in fat and sugar so this will mean that because she can’t cook food for herself she won’t be getting a variety of different foods and also a variety of different nutrition’s. this could mean that Elizabeth’s condition could become worse because she is already suffering with weak bones so if she isn’t having a good intake of calcium this could then make her condition deterate because of the low amount of calcium that she is in taking. This could also cause Elizabeth to either loose or put on weight this is because these meals are high in fat she could begin to put lots of weight on but also because she could begin to lose weight because she could start to suffer from under nutrition.
This could have an influence on Elizabeth’s dietary habits because this would mean that her meal patterns would have to change because she…...

...make sure trains; buses, etc. are accessible and have the right facilities for anyone with a disability. “The government has implemented the legislation in three phases. Phase 1 in 1996 made it illegal to treat disabled people less favourably because of their disability. Phase 2 in 1999 obliged businesses to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for disabled staff, like providing support or equipment. They also have to start making changes to the way they provide their services to customers, for example providing bank statements in large print. Phase 3 from October 2004, businesses may have to make physical alterations to their premises to overcome access barriers. The example people most readily think of is installing ramps for wheelchair users. M2 For this task, I am assess the influence of one recent national policy initiative promoting anti-discriminatory practice on a particular setting.

Health and Social Care P3, M2 and D1

...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......

10b - Care Provided for Looked After Children P2, M1, M2, D1

...this includes the need to be protected from harm. This act states that children and young people should be protected from harm. It also states that it is vital to have respect for the child's race, culture and ethnicity. The Children's Act 1989 states that it is the parent's responsibility for bringing up the child and taking into account the child's wishes and feelings in the decisions taken that affect them. This is a benefit when children and young people are being looked after as the act states that the parents or carers of the child will have to take into consideration the child's wishes and feelings, this will in turn allow the child to have independence as the child will be able to have a say in the decisions that are being made. M2: Explain the roles and responsibilities of two members of the children’s workforce in relation to looked after children and young people The Children's Workforce is made up of a variety of people from various sectors that each have a different role to play, however despite these variations all these individuals and their sectors work in order to deliver the five Every Child Matters (ECM) Outcomes for children and young people.

...13B – Distribution and constituents of fluids P3: Distribution and constituents of body fluids – M2: Explain functions of the constituents of body fluids - Constituents of body fluid - The human body consists mostly of water, and is a major constituent to the human body and vital organs; of this 90% include blood plasma, lymph, urine, saliva, digestive juices, bile, cerebrospinal fluid and tissue fluid. Water enables substances to be transported throughout the body, red blood cells for example, as wells as supplying the medium required for metabolic reaction to take place (respiration). Without water the progression of these fluids would not be possible. Water is constantly being transported between the fluid compartments of the body. Water has five main functions in the body, of which includes: • 'Cell life - distribute nutrients to cells i.e. vitamins, minerals and glucose • Chemical and metabolic reactions - removal of waste products (toxins) from the organs • Transport of nutrients – participates in the breakdown of food • Body temperature regulation - water has a large heat capacity that allows it to help limit any changes to an individual's body temperature in a certain environment. For example the release of heat when the surrounding temperature is higher than body temperature • Elimination of waste' Urea – Urea is an organic molecule made up of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen.

P3 M2 D1 Patterns and Trends in Health and Ilness Among Diffrent Social Groups

...P3 Explain patterns and trends in health and illness among different social groupings Gender Men and women have different levels of risks of getting mental illnesses such as alcohol dependency. This is “more than twice as high in men than women. In developed countries, approximately 1 in 5 men and 1 in 12 women develop alcohol dependence during their lives” WHO 2015. This clearly shows that men and women have different risks when it comes to health and illness. Men are also twice as likely to have personality disorders, but women are more likely to have anxiety and depression than men are. Women have more accounts of sexual harassment and rape and this has a knock on effect to the amount of people with depression. Social class Different social classes have different levels of financial stability, which is also directly linked to the health care that is available and the housing and area in which they live. People in the lower class have higher levels of illness and bad health, as they cannot afford private healthcare so would then have to wait for appointments and go to public hospitals where they may be very busy and have a low amount of appointments available. Also people from the lower class may not be eating as well as others as they are on a strict budget this means they may be missing certain vitamins and minerals from their diet. Eating cheap microwave meals and processed food is not as good as eating fresh meals and organic fruit and vegetables. Table –......

...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......

...P3 and M2 A possible influence on Mr. Kumar’s diet would be the fact that he is Hindu. This would come under the category of cultural, as this is his religion. Most Hindu’s do not eat beef but others will only eat it if it comes from the animals sacrificed in rituals (ask.com). It is possible that the fact that he is a widower may make a difference to his diet because it could have been possible that his wife used to cook him most of his food and therefore when she passed away part of his lifestyle changed as his family dynamics changed therefore he is not able to cook for himself. He also has type 2 diabetes and this would come under a health factor, this will mean he doesn’t have to completely exclude sugary foods from his diet but he must have less than other people and they and avoid and limit them as much as the can. It is important he has enough starch, carbs as well as fruit and vegetables. (Nhs.uk) Another point coming under the category of lifestyle would be how much exercise he does, this would affect his diet. He does not do much exercise except a little bit of walking each week meaning he is not burning many calories away, this adds to the fact that he should possibly try and live a healthier life style with what he eats. He is apart of HomeLink and this is also part of lifestyle because although he may struggle with dinner he is always guaranteed a hot lunch cooked for him in HomeLink and as for dinner he will go to his daughters who live in a ‘granny......

...M2 – Assess the hazard identified in the health or social care setting. D1 – Make recommendations in relation to identified hazards to minimise the risk to the service user group The first hazard that I will be assessing is the wooden structure that I spotted in the Blended Learning Centre in the Breakspeare Building. As a group we gave the structure a severity of 3 and a likelihood of 3, of which, the overall risk rating was 9. With this structure, I was convinced that the severity of an accident, should it occur should be at least a 4 because it was quite a big structure; the damage it could inflict was a lot. My team members stated that since it was in a secluded corner of the Blended Centre, no one was exposed to that much risk as hardly anyone would go to that part if they see that it is obstructed by the structure. However, I still maintained that there is always the possibility that the structure could impale an individual, even though it remains in the secluded area. In addition, the way that the structure is set up on a work space that students use proves that it breaks a number of health and safety policies because for a student to work efficiently and to feel safe in their working environment, all items that could prove to cause harm to them, such as this wooden structure, must be removed to allow a safe working place. This is also another reason why I was arguing that the risk rating should have been higher than the “9” we had given it. In this case, I think...
