Before this weneed to understand the definition of partnership, it is a sharing of knowledge,views and opinion among two or many individuals involved in an organisation,country or else. The terms philosophy of working in partnership refers to astate of mind, an attitude, guidance when starting an engagement to worktogether in the three level of partnership. Everything is linked as soon as the partnership began the potential ofthe staff or organisation, the service quality and all other significantfactors that can affect or increase the growth of the future.Excellent partnership functioning is moreover vital forconstruction of well-built, successful associations inside and all over firms(Barnes, Matka and Sullivan, 2007).A good working partnership is essential if you want to have aprosperous financial increase.

Now will have a look to the three levels which are:- Service user ProfessionalIt is professionals that work inHealthcare, forms part of a group related to individual using the serviceprovided. Both professional and serviceuser has an important impact on partnership of the organisation. That is why collaboration between them isvital, this ensure the delivery of good services to patient. If the satisfaction of the patient isachieved it will help to promote the quality care of the organisation for thefuture. We all know that an effectiveteam contribute positively to the safety of patients.
In our everyday life, each of mustlives according to some standard that the quality of the food we intake, thetype of transport we will travel to go to work, in terms of communicationalso. Same applies to every organisation;they need to work according to a certain standard which provides safety andreliability to the service user confidence. There are also codes of ethics that are compulsory to be respected inthe health sector. The service user professional needs to abide on theconfidentiality of information of their patients. They must not disclose or discuss neitherbetween colleagues nor with friend on data regarding service user.

We all knowthat elders have difficulty to be understood due to their impairment anddisabilities.So to be able to take care of elderlypatients in the healthcare domains, we need to show interest and has the senseempathy. It is essential to establish and maintain relationships based on trustamount everyone in the workplace including service user.The elders need to be supported byyounger staff to fulfil their daily needs.
There are some important guidelinesthat the younger need to implement for an effective and efficientcommunication.

The use of simplelanguage, transmit information slowly and clearly and the body languages gestalwill help.
On virtue that need to behighly apply when dealing with elders is the sense of patience, give themsufficient time to respond or express their views and feeling at their ownpath.Here we have some rules thatcaregiver must implement in their duty according to the Ethical principles: i. Respectingthe person’s dignity regardless of his physical or psychological state.
Courtesy is mandatory. ii. Respectingthe person’s freedom, autonomy, values and decisions (if he is competent). Wemust obtain his consent before proceeding with a medical act and he has theright to refuse care.

Among we have the right togive them speak for themselves regarding decision making on particularthings. There should be a respect ontheir will and choices, this essential for their autonomy.
We will finish onthe different type of support and help that could preserve their independenceas long as possible. Our objective is toencourage them to participate in social activity according to their condition.For example a person with a physicalor mental impairments can be induces in a workshop session to learn and promotehis motor skills and thus developing his creativity. He can create marvellous stuffs like pottery,napkins, artisanal basket. It is an experience of working in a team even theyhave a disabilities. The aspect of this sharing skill is important.
