Role Play Scenario You the student are a care worker at a home where older people reside on a full time/permanent basis. Many of the people live with dementia. Below are several scenarios that you are required to ‘act out’ in role play? A classmate or colleague is to play the role of the person with dementia. Julie’s mother lives with dementia and has recently moved into the aged care facility where you work as a support worker. You have just met Julie as she came to visit her mother. You were talking to Julie on her way out of her mother’s room and this is what she said to you: “Fortunately Mum’s personality has not changed at all. She is still her dear self, kind and gentle, well groomed, cooperative and very social. When I visited her last week she became agitated a nd distressed. I couldn’t work out what was happening at first, then I wondered if she may want to go to the toilet. I took her there, she smiled her usual warm smile and said ‘what are we here for? Just give me a hint, just a clue, and I’ll be ok.’ She could use the toilet after given a hint. The awful thing was that she could not think what to do by herself. I could hardly contain my tears and had to leave quickly before she saw me start crying.” The task: One of your classmates or colleagues is to play the part of Julie. You are required to demonstrate what you say, what advice you might give or what you would do if a significant other of a person you cared for was in this situation. Julie is clearly upset and is having trouble coping with the impact of dementia .

    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.
