Lifestyle and social history questionnaire
Knowing a person’s life story can help us to better understand and connect with them. This, in turn, can help us understand the person, their preferences and why they may respond to certain things in certain ways. It also helps us know a person’s identity, likes, dislikes and interests, as well as the important people and life events that have helped shape who
they are. This information enables us to personalise care to meet individual needs. This may be especially important where a person can no longer communicate their needs or preferences.
