Wellbeing

Wellbeing is a broad concept, and it is described as relating to the following areas in particular: personal dignity; physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing; protection from abuse and neglect; control by the individual over day-to-day life; participation in work, education, training or recreation; social and economic wellbeing; domestic, family and personal; suitability of living accommodation; the individual’s contribution to society. The individual aspects of wellbeing or outcomes are those which are set out in the Care Act, and are most relevant to people with care and support needs and carers. There is no hierarchy, and all should be considered of equal importance when considering wellbeing in the round.
