If you suspect abuse you must record what has lead to this suspicion, find out any information you can in order to help determine if this is the truth, you must inform other carers, your manager, the individuals care manager and the relevant authorities to ensure that this suspicion to be investigated as soon as possible. For example, an individual I care for with learning disabilities and epilepsy made a phone call to the organisation I work in around 10pm and informed me that she was going out, as it is her right to chose when and where she goes I could not tell her she could not do so, instead I asked where she was going, she informed me she was going to a party at a friends house, I then tried to obtain information about where her friends
Many people are supported in their homes by people who work along side the health and social care service such as social workers,nursers ,doctor and care givers or they may get support from their family members and friends. An elderly person may choose to stay in their own homes instead of a residential care home while seeking help and support from others,however this can lead to potential opportunities for abuse happening to the person who Is being looked after. When an individual is getting support at home by a carer, the individual being cared for is vulnerable and defenseless and therefor this makes them a target for abuse,another example is abuse by strangers,when an elderly person lives alone they are at risk of people calling at the door and then gaining access to their homes,they may steal items from them or mistreat them or cause intimidation.
Are people using these unreasonable feelings or opinions to fit in, or do they have a justifiable reason? There are many different outlooks that people have when looking at others. In the grand scheme of things where do we draw the line of when it’s right or wrong to use these opinions? Prejudice can come in a variety of ways that people catorgize into many forms. These forms can come in the form of nonverbal or verbal.
The final result will not always fit everyone’s liking. There can be a lack of trust among the group members. Finally there can be situations in where only experts about the topic should be able to decide. Firstly, reaching a consensus is not always a good idea because it will not fit everyone’s liking.

The Local Complaint Stage (1) Immediately after hearing of a complaint, contact the complainant to determine where their issues lie and what they would like to see as a result of the investigation.

As is clear from word itself, prejudice is having a pre-judgment about someone belonging to a community or a group. Till the time it is just a feeling it is called a prejudice, however it turns into discrimination as soon as the feeling turns into an action. Prejudices soon turn into discrimination and in turn harm the society. After the 9/11 attacks, people became prejudiced against people even remotely connected to the middle-east. These people were discriminated against, and shunned from the society (as soon in the movie ‘My name is Khan’).
To explain these remarks we must first define prejudice. Prejudice is an opinion that was formed unreasonably about a person or a group of people. Cultural norms heavily influence our ideas, behaviors and values. And being in groups of like-minded individuals has the tendency to strengthen the beliefs one has. Even just one repetitive member has the ability to persuade the masses.
The prejudice that am familiar with from an academic perspective would be what I term the in between group of kids in the public school system. This group of children is the children that are not your average child mentally but are not as easy to identify as say a child with autism. This group of children that I feel receives a negative attitude from the teachers, their peers, the school, and often times even the community this negative treatment is considered prejudice according to Weiten, Dunn, & Hammer (2015). This group of kids that I am referring to as the in between group often have some disorders that affect their daily lives including but not limited to the following: • ADD/ADHD - Attention Deficit Disorder & Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder • Anxiety Disorder • Bi Polar Disorder • ODD - Oppositional Defiant Disorder • OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder • Pervasive Development Disorder Each of these disorders can cause a child to suffer greatly at the hands of those who pre judge them as being kids that just need to have a stern hand in their life, or are just spoiled.
But developing those prejudices would dictate the way we treated those different from us, and we hurt them as well as limit ourselves as a result. I took a long time to recognise that the truth behind harbouring a biased perspective of the world made virtually everything black and white, with no room at all for shades of grey. But the world was not colured in black and white. In fact, it was tinged in hues of colour that would take me more than a lifetime to
