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.

Describe the communication requirements of different audiences Knowing your audience helps you to choose which form of communication to use, for example, if I was speaking to a child I would speak calmly with a slightly high pitched voice as its more soothing towards the child, where as if I was talking to a teacher I would speak in my normal tone, depending on my relationship with the teacher, where as if I was talking to someone very important I would speak in a polite, professional manner. Different audiences require different communication styles. When communicating with other people, it is important to adapt to meet their needs. If you are trying to pass on information to someone outside of your department, it would be impractical to use technical jargon that they would not normally come across or use. When speaking to a customer who is upset or angry, you should remain calm and ensure that the instructions you give them are completely understood in order to avoid further confusion.

The NHS will be using both treatment and preventative measures as an approach by giving Adam leaflets and information booklets that will give him a better understanding of his diagnosis, so that he knows what to expect throughout university when he doesn’t have his family close by to support him. By having a better understanding of his diagnosis Adam will be able to educate others around him about schizophrenia and make them understand what may happen to him, by doing this the new people he meets wouldn’t be so alarmed at seeing the symptoms that might come about in Adams everyday life, and also because the doctor is giving him medication in order to treat his diagnosis.
