Case Study 1 – Claude and Ray
Claude is a new client at New Greens Care Facility. He has come into care as he has had a stroke, and his male partner Ray is no longer able to look after him. Claude is finding it very difficult to adjust to life at the facility. Ray’s sister brings him in to visit Claude once a month as he is unable to drive, but she has never been able to accept their homosexual relationship. After 20 minutes or so she insists on leaving. Claude confides to his carer that he misses Ray terribly. He might as well not come to visit anymore as Ray’s sister glares at them if they so much as hold hands and says they are disgusting. He yearns just to share some love and affection.

  • What effect do you think Ray’s sister is having on Claude’s emotional and psychological wellbeing?

  • Apart from supplying a trundle bed, what support could you give Claude to provide a suitable environment where they will feel secure, private and comfortable?
 
  •  
You stop in to check on Claude and Ray and notice that they have set out and lit a lot of candles. While you think that is very romantic, you ask them to extinguish a number of candles, specifically those on the window sill and some on the floor. Ray starts to put them out but Claude asks you why they need to.
  • Explain what you would say to Claude, taking into consideration your organisation’s relevant workplace procedures. In your response, including the name of the organisation’s procedures that you would follow.

You tell Claude and Ray you are finishing up your shift, and wish them a lovely evening. About 15 minutes later you leave the building and head to your car. You glance in the direction of Claude’s windows and can make out the flicker of candles on the window sill.
  • What should you do, based on your workplace’s procedures?
 
Claude is much happier now Ray is able to visit regularly. However the other day they got a bit carried away in the dining room and offended some of the other residents who complained that their behaviour was putting them off their dinner!

You notice after one of these trips that he has bruises all over his upper arms. You ask him how he got the bruises and he just shrugs it off and says it’s nothing, he hasn’t even noticed them. Harry is rather melancholy but you can see he is upset and he keeps rubbing the bruises.
  1. What will you do in this situation and why? Use your organisation’s policies and procedures in this case to guide your answer. In your answer, please identify the name of the organisational procedure you would follow.
 
Case Study 3 – Billy

When his mother arrives to pick him up after the activity, she mentions that she is struggling to keep Billy out of the pantry and fridge. She tells you he often becomes angry if she denies him junk food, so she has been giving in to him.

Instructions:

For this task, you will participate in a role play to demonstrate that you can support independence and wellbeing. Your assessor will play the role of Cathy, and you will play the role of a leisure and lifestyle assistant.

You are a leisure and lifestyle assistant at a disability support centre. One of the people you provide care for is a 19-year-old named Cathy. Cathy has a spinal cord injury and is paralysed from the waist down so she makes use of a powered wheelchair. Before Cathy had her accident, she loved dancing and she was involved in dancing competitions. Immediately after Cathy’s accident one year ago, she suffered terrible depression at the thought of never being able to walk, or dance, again. She lives at home with her parents but she visits the disability centre twice per week in the afternoons to socialise with other people in a similar situation to her own, and to engage in activities. Cathy enjoys most of the activities she participates in at the centre. She is not so fond of the arts and crafts activities on a Wednesday, but this is the only class offered during the time on Wednesday she visits the centre. She especially loves the physical activities which are tailored to upper body fitness and ball sports, however, she only attends one of these classes per week and the centre runs three. Recently however, she has confided in you that she would love to find out about wheelchair dancing as a sport. She has been struggling to adapt to her new life since the accident and has been struggling with her depression on and off. The fact that she is not playing competitive sports anymore affects her greatly.
CHCCCS023 SUPPORT INDEPENDENCE AND WELLBEING

Do some research so you can provide some information to Cathy about where she can participate in wheelchair dancing in your local area (use the nearest city location if you are in a rural area) and have it ready to bring to the role play.

Cathy has asked you for help in accessing information about wheelchair dancing and will need to take some form of information with you like an iPad, laptop, brochures or printed information. You are going to sit in the lounge of the centre and discuss options for her together.

Your assessor will provide you with a date and time for the roleplay. Meet with your assessor who will play the role of Cathy, you will play the role of the leisure and lifestyle assistant. You need to ensure the environment is suitable for Cathy and her wheelchair and deal with any potential hazards before the time.

During the role play your assessor will be looking to see that you: Promote participation in activities that suit Cathy’s interests and needsSupport her to discuss her own preferences and express her identity without imposing own viewpointConsider her needs, stage of life, development and strengthsEncourage her to continue building her independenceSupport her to identify and acknowledge her own strengths and manage her own activitiesPromote self-esteem and confidenceUse supportive and effective communication

You will need to discuss Cathy’s preferences, ideas and various options with her. Take notes during the meeting and plan to set some short-term and long-term goals with Cathy. Think about her interests and how these could be better catered for when she visits the centre.

After the role play, your assessor will ask you some verbal questions related to the role play.
