Privacy is defined as giving someone space where and when they need it, and dignity is defined as focusing on the value of every individual, including: Respecting their views, choices and decisions, Not making assumptions about how they want to be treated, Working with care and compassion. There are two crucial attributes you must have when working with people in a caring, supportive environment.
