Case Study 1
A gentleman had a car accident 26 years ago, as a result of the accident he was unable to continue with his employment and support his family.
His wife cared for him in every way at home since that day.
This gentleman attends Day Care Services three times a week, one day whilst at the Day Centre he stated to his support worker “I want to work, I want to care for my wife” she listened and understood his needs, she immediately shared this request with the care management who then informed the Social Worker.
By working as a team within a few months, this gentleman now works two days a week in a Craft Centre, he makes beautiful items out of wood such as clocks and small nest of tables.
He is happier, more fulfilled, improved his self esteem, and feels as though he is last contributing to his family.
Case Study 2
A gentleman with cerebral palsy, has lived independently in his own home for many years through the support of a small team.
He mobilises around his home and in the community with the support of a 4-wheeled walker frame and a wheelchair.
He has many interests that he is able to enjoy, one day he asked if he could take up swimming again, but he informed his support worker that he did not want to go into the swimming pool as a disabled person using the Pool Chair Hoist. This was very important to him.
By supporting this gentleman to visit a number of local leisure centres one was found where the entry into the water was at ground level by way of a gentle slope until deeper water was reached.
The gentleman and his support worker were then able to present to the rest of the community as just two friends able to walk side by side into the pool.
