A positive care environment brings service users the understanding that they are treated both with respect and as individuals. The needs of each individual are to be met by service staff and it must be appreciated that these requirements will be varied.  Service staff should also recognise that everyone has their own choices and preferences.
This sort of care practice brings benefits to the service user by creating a caring environment. There are many relevant acts of legislation that encourage this framework by promoting a positive care practice and as such social workers must adhere to several laws. A positive care environment promotes empowerment of the individuals in care, as well as a sense of well being and equal opportunity.
The policy also safeguards human rights and maintains confidence in the professional standards of care homes and care professionals.
The framework also provides the ability to choose and maintain a quality of life for an individual or the individuals in any one care home.
A positive care environment is created through the following of key policies both within the home itself and legal guidelines from above.

These all ensure the maintenance of a quality and caring environment. This can all be helped through a mixture of strategies and structures in a number of different areas:
1) Management should commit and lead by example.
2) Support structures should be in place to foster strong and helpful relationships for employees and staff.
3) There should also be education and support opportunities for training and advancement.
