Culturally competent care – the essence of good service user experience

We all can agree that healthcare is built on trust. In order to trust someone. We need to let our guards down. Guards are barriers to healthcare access. There are many barriers to healthcare access such as physical geography, availability of services, transportation, healthcare provider-related barriers, culture, communication, language, finances and various others. These barriers cause health inequalities, which result in poor health outcomes and poor quality of life. In order to see better health in the community, it is important to break down these barriers.

Person-centred care at Rexshi Healthcare

Help your neighbours in winter

Check on older neighbours or relatives to make sure they’re safe and well. Make sure they’re warm enough, especially at night, and have stocks of food and medicines so they don’t need to go out during very cold weather.

Wear warm clothes

Wrap up warm, inside and out. Wear lots of thin layers – clothes made from cotton, wool or fleecy fibres are particularly good and help to maintain body heat. Wear shoes with a good grip to prevent slips and falls when walking outside. If possible, stay inside during a cold period if you have heart or respiratory problems.

Keep your home warm

If you have reduced mobility, are 65 or over, or have a health condition such as heart or lung disease, you should heat your home to at least 18C. It’s a good idea to keep your bedroom at this temperature all night if you can. During the day you may prefer your living room to be slightly warmer. Make sure you wear enough clothes to stay warm. If you’re under 65 and healthy and active, you can safely have your house cooler than 18C, if you’re comfortable. You can also use a hot water bottle or electric blanket (but not both […]
