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.

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.
In this case, my client is three years old and is unable to physically attend the healthcare services alone, so she needs help to be taken to her local GP for check-ups. But sometimes her family is unable to take her to the services due to no transportation being available as well as the location being further away from home. This is a barrier for Ruth as it prevents her from receiving sufficient care which could affect Ruth’s wellbeing. The GP minimises this barrier by having a system that ensures Ruth attends her check-ups and appointments.
It 's affiliated with the Royal Adelaide Hospital and therefore is funded and all the workers are paid by the government. If this funding was to stop, it would not only affect Adelaide but it would also affect a lot of people all over South Australia. They provide a lot of services for people with cystic fibrosis, lung cancer and sleep apnoea. All of these patients would have to go to another clinic, putting the pressure on for the other chest clinics to care for a lot more people. As this is the only clinic in SA that does TB screening, if it was to stop there would be nowhere for people to get their TB screening done.

D1/D2/A1 This piece of work will be focusing on a child aged 18 months starting a nursery day care setting. The two key issues that will be looked at in this assignment will be planning, preparing and reviewing for the child to settling into the setting. Secondly I will be looking into the child’s emotional support that the child may need when starting the setting, along with the attachments of the child that will need to be built or have already been put in place. When planning for a child to start a new setting there will be certain things that will need to be taken into consideration, for example; the child at hand may have never been separated from their primary carers beforehand.

Nature vs Nurture relates to an individuals behaviour and characteristics and whether they are inherited through their DNA and genes, which can be seen as an innate approach to the debate.This is because innatism believes that the mind is born with all knowledge.Nurture states our behaviour and characteristics are learned through our environment and experiences, This therefore can be seen as empiricist approach as empiricism states that we are born a blank slate and everything we know is learned through our senses.
