Step 2 – Recommendations for US Implementation 

Assume that you work for an organization that runs a system of social care in your State. The system includes individual elder care homes as well as care managers supporting elder care in private homes. Your Director of Operations has asked you to prepare a research paper of what factors to consider when implementing the ‘Dignity in Social Care’ concepts. Be sure to: 

  • Explain what “Dignity in Social Care” is. 

  • Describe the eight Dignity Factors with at least one example. 

  • Describe how Dignity in Social Care concepts uniquely pertain to: 

o Elders whom are LGBTQI
o Elders whom are Female
o Elders whom are Racially Diverse (for example: African American, Native American, etc.) o Elders whom are Culturally Diverse (for example: Asians who are devout Hindu, Buddhist,Muslim, etc.)
