She is a very independent woman and enjoys working as a volunteer in the community and also runs an art class. Mabel fell and broke her shoulder. She needed surgery and spent ten days in hospital. Once she was clinically stable, she was worried about how she would manage at home as she had no family close by. She was told that she would be dependent on support for activities of daily living for up to two months while her shoulder repaired itself.Mabel was very worried that she would have to remain in hospital for that time, however arrangements were made for her to be discharged from hospital and receive assistance at home until she was able to be independent once more.A care plan was set up and was planned to go for six weeks at which time it would be re-evaluated. Care included showering, dressing, cleaning, transport to physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and meals on wheels.At her review after six weeks Mabel has very happy with her progress. She was going back to volunteer work one day a week and planning to restart her art classes next week. She had cancelled the meals on wheels the previous week as she found she was able to cook for herself now. It was agreed that she no longer needed home support.
