There is enormous credence given to “Human Rights” these days. Although human rights is a great tool in the fight for quality of life care, it can become a direct care staff work avoidance tool in supported accommodation group homes and similar

It is easy to say, those with little or no understanding of consequences are indicating not wanting a bath, their teeth cleaned or to go out, etc, etc, as a valued choice when it suits staff who would rather not do these things.

Where is the balance between “Client’s Choice” and “Duty of Care”?
