These Personal Services Standard/Safe Operating Procedures have clear step-by-step instructions for carrying out assisted shopping, showering, and dressing and workplace hygiene.
They are designed to provide safety controls for carers working with people that have learning disabilities, physical disabilities or both. The Safe Operating Procedures can also be used by carers who need to carry out personal services on their own or as part of a team.
We hope that they will make life easier for everyone involved by providing clear advice on how best to safely support people who require assistance with their personal care needs.
The procedures cover all aspects of personal care, from assisted shopping and meal preparation to washing, showering and hygiene assistance.
These procedures follow recognised guidelines and are written to ensure staff can carry out these procedures safely by minimising their risk of harm, especially when the person they are assisting is in a vulnerable position.
SOPs also help to ensure that organisations meet their duty of care requirements.
