Hi, i could do with some help on a couple of questions here...

Q. Explain how to address personal hygiene issues with an individual in a sensitive manner without imposing own values...

Really not sure what to put here? Is it to suggest having a wash before getting dressed, or brushing teeth before breakfast??? No idea what to put...

Q. Describe how to make an individual aware of the effects of poor hygiene on others...
sensitively expain about spread of infection? washing hands before meal times etc? Not sure on this one either.

Q. describe how to support an individual to develop and improve personal hygiene routines.
Again with this question... is it basically assist the individual with each task then allowing them to do what they can on their own, giving them more independance gradually??

thank you

Hello,
You're certainly on right track for everything. Just think of that word 'sensitively' and remember that not everyone thinks you need to wash/shower/bath every day, you may but that doesn't mean they have to do it for you. On developing and improving think about taking them shopping for some nice toiletries, make it something to enjoy.
