Question 9

 
 
Alberto has had a stroke.  Although his wife, Michaela has been able to provide love and support for Alberto, there are some things they just couldn’t manage. Alberto and his case manager, John, have talked about his needs, with Michaela being involved in the discussion.  They are adamant about what Michaela can do for Alberto and the types of support they need. They ask for help with Alberto’s showering, dressing and transport as Michaela does not drive. Alberto also wants to attend physiotherapy to regain his strength. After a few months, Alberto is very happy with his progress. He is now quite capable of showering and dressing himself and has just been given permission from his doctor to drive again. John meets with Alberto and Michaela to discuss changes to his care plan. It is agreed to cease the personal care and transport services, but in place of those John will receive some assistance with gardening and general maintenance, as he still finds balance and heavy work difficult.

Gianni lives alone at home. His eyesight is deteriorating rapidly, however he is fiercely determined to stay in his own home until he dies.  He walks to the shops each day at 10.00am to do his shopping, but he is finding it harder to do with his bad eyesight.  The town where he lives is not the same as it was when he moved there fifty years ago.

There is a large problem in the area with high rates of unemployment and large rates of methamphetamine use.

Question 14

Bunty has cancer. She has undergone one program of chemotherapy and has been receiving HACC services due to her declining health needs. Bunty was very sick during the treatment, but her health gradually improved. Last week Bunty was distressed to find out that her cancer is back. Her oncologist has strongly recommended a further chemotherapy program. If she does not have treatment she is likely to die within a month. Bunty has decided not to have the second lot of chemotherapy – instead she wants to die at home. Her family are angry that she is giving in to the disease – especially as the oncologist has so strongly recommended further treatment.
CHCHCS001 PROVIDING HOME AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES
 
The family approach you and ask if you can talk some sense into Bunty. They ask you for legal advice about whether Bunty can be forced to take the treatment. They also ask you lots of technical questions about Bunty’s cancer and how treatment will work. Bunty has given her consent for you to share information with her family, but you don’t really feel this is within the role of your job.

ASSESSMENT TASK 2: CASE STUDIES
Task summary: You are to read the case studies and complete the questions that follow.
CHCHCS001 PROVIDING HOME AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES

What do I need in order to complete this assessment?

When do I do this task?

what do I need to do if I get something wrong?

If your assessor marks any of your answers as incorrect, they will talk to you about resubmission. You will need to do one of the following:

Case Study 1: Bernie and Glenys
Bernie and Glenys have been married for 47 years. Glenys has been diagnosed with dementia and requires constant care. Bernie has been caring for Glenys at home and is committed to her care.  Now Bernie has found out that he has terminal cancer. He will probably only have about six months to live.  Bernie is distraught and worried about what will happen to Glenys after he dies. One day while you are cleaning their bedroom, you find a stash of medications hidden behind the cupboard. When you ask Bernie about them he looks very guilty. He says that they are his ‘insurance’ to make sure that neither he nor Glenys will suffer.  He also says that you should not say anything to Glenys or anyone else about them – he couldn’t bear for Glenys to be lonely when he dies. You look at the medications and see that these are very strong. You realise that Bernie is considering ending his own and Glenys’s lives when he feels they can no longer cope. 
CHCHCS001 PROVIDING HOME AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES

 
 
 
The workplace grapevine quickly becomes active. One of your colleagues comes rushing up to you, ‘Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that Bernie was going to murder his wife!’ she exclaims. ‘What did he say to you? Is he going to be arrested? Poor old Glenys – he kept on saying he wanted to care for her at home but all this time he just wanted to get rid of her.’

Case Study 2: Candice
Candice is frail and has dementia. Her dementia has been caused by a history of drug and alcohol abuse.  She lives at home with her niece, Nevaeh, who cares for her.  Candice receives support at home to shower and receives meals on wheels. Nevaeh is known to be an alcoholic and it is expected that she also takes illegal drugs.  Lately Candice has been losing a lot of weight. There has also been some unusual bruising on her arms and chest – Nevaeh explained that Candice often falls out of bed, especially if she has been drinking.  Nevaeh is drunk when you arrive today and you see that she is eating Candice’s meals on wheels. You also find medications in the kitchen, which have obviously not been given to Candice for some time.  When you ask Nevaeh about why she is eating Candice’s food, she says that there is no point in her giving it to Candice as she just spills it down herself. When you ask her about Candice’s medication, Nevaeh says that these are old prescriptions that she doesn’t take any more (even though they are the medications listed on the care plan). She then says, ‘Is it pension day today? Thank god! I’m desperate for some ciggies!’ She then races out, leaving you alone with Candice. You know that Nevaeh has access to Candice’s bank account.

Case Study 3: Albert
Albert is dying. As he is enduring his last few days, he asks if he can tell you something.  You are happy to sit down for a chat, as you often enjoy a chat with him when you visit his home. Albert begins to talk. You are shocked to hear him confess that, when he was a teacher during the 1960s and 1970s, he committed some sexual offences against girls and boys at the school where he was working.  Albert cries that he is truly sorry for what he did. Two days later he dies. His family assembles around his bedside and talk about what a gentle and good man he was. You feel that Albert was genuinely sorry for what he did. You know that you are obligated to report all issues of child abuse, however you wonder if there is any need in this case – it all happened so long ago and Albert was such a nice man.
