Checkpoint: Long-Term Care Simulation What did you see as being the greatest challenge for the case worker in this simulation? What other challenges do case workers face when working with placement of the elderly in long-term care facilities? Do you see any alternatives to Mrs. W’s long-term care situation? If yes, what are they? If no, why not? I could never do what this caseworker does for a living. Her job is ridiculously hard to begin with. The hardest challenge, I would think, would be trying to determine what is best for a woman that she doesn’t know. She almost has to take on the role of the woman’s daughter to assess what is the best action for this woman. I think that case workers would find their biggest challenge to be determining what is the best route for their clients without tying them down too much. You would not want to put a person into a nursing home if they were capable of taking care of themselves. I’m sure case workers have to be very observant of their clients abilities without really knowing them. The only alternative that I have seen

Unformatted text preview: with Mrs. W’s situation is having her daughter come and live with her to care for her. Although, the case worker cannot make this happen, it would be a better alternative than having strangers take care of her. The widow lives by herslf in a two story home. I would guess that the house is big enough for the daughter and her three kids. The daughter works an entry-level job that can easily be replaced anywhere in the United States. This would give the daughter a shared cost of living so she could support her children for cheaper and still be able to help her mother. This is a lot of responsibility, but she should make exceptions for her mother. There are no changes that I can see from the case workers perspective. She is doing everything in her power to make this woman’s life as easy as possible for her. The case worker cannot provide her with more income or give her medical attention for free so her hands are tied....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
