Promoting positive attitudes to ageing starts with the carer. The carer will probably be the person that spends the most time with the client. The carer needs to have a person centre care approach to help promote positive ageing attitudes.Open communication is essential to help achieve positives, this can be started with always calling a person by their name each day to help preserve their identity – no elder speak. In just the last few weeks elder speak has been prohibited in both nursing homes and hospitals. In calling a person by their name it helps the carer to focus on the person and also the older person feels like they have your attention.When the carer is about to undertake tasks with the client the manner in which this is approached should always involve the client. The carer should take the time to explain what they are going to do, ask the client is this ok and give the client some choices whether it be a certain jumper or socks. This can help the client to feel like they are involved in their own decision making.The carer should always be trying to promote independence and only assist where necessary to avoid ‘learned helplessness’. The carer should be focused on the client’s strengths allowing the client to do what they are able to do.In promoting healthy attitudes the carer should take the time to communicate openly with the clients. The carer should have reviewed the clients care plan allowing them to be able to have a discussion with the clients about topics that may be important to them. Each client may have their own spiritual beliefs and sets of values the carer must respect these at all times.In communicating with the client the carer should always be conscious of body language, tone of voice and eye contact. If the carer is trying to promote positive attitudes they should be actively listening to their clients, they should never dismiss a client’s worry or concern. The carer should be encouraging their clients to express themselves freely without fear of judgement or dismissal of their worries or anxiety.
