Choose one of the following: Catheter care (not including insertion or removal of tubes) Application of prostheses Application of anti-thrombotic stockings Assistance with breathing tubes (under direct supervision of a health professional) Simple eye care.

P a g e | 19 Objective To provide you with an opportunity to identify and respond to routine difficulties during support routines, and report more complex problems to supervisor. Activity Identify your own example, in the style of the examples given in chapter 3.3 of the unit, of how you could identify an issue providing care. Explain how you could consult with the client and the supervisor to resolve the issue. Changes to clients’ personal care requirements can be related to: Sensory difficulties : such as the loss or impairment of sight and hearing Mobility issues : such as the need for a wheelchair or an electric wheelchair New conditions : the development of new conditions, such as dementia or incontinence Injuries : care required as the result of an injury or accident, such as a fall New requirements : for example, if the client now needs help with dressing or eating, when they haven’t required this kind of help before Worsening of existing conditions : where conditions deteriorate and the client needs additional support or a different treatment New or changed preferences : such as if the client decides that they no longer want to be treated by male caregivers. Where changes are identified, these should be reported to a supervisor so they can be documented correctly in the client’s care plan and so a strategy can be decided, with the client’s input, about how to adapt their care to suit their changing needs. You can report to the relevant supervisor in several ways: Verbal: telephone call face-to-face Written: reports case notes hazard and incident reports care plans notes emails.

    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.
