Parents often need extra support to help them parent and children will need to be with foster carer while that is taking place. Other parents may suffer from ill health and have no family or friends to care for their children or child while they receive treatment. Sometimes
So many people want to be independent but this actually creates a problem, more seniors are relying on community facilities or retirement homes to assist them with their daily living. Another thing about seniors is that they want to stay in their homes but cannot be able to afford the mortgage or let along the up keep of a home. So a great number of seniors are having to turn to retirement homes or even assisted living facilities. I believe that another reason why the health care is facing this problem today is because a great number of family members do not have the patience to put up with their loved one so they send them to an assisted home or even a retirement center. Which is sad to me because an individual’s mom and dad raises them but when it comes to the time for them to take care of them they just ship them
Task 3 Case Study – “I am Sam” In everyone’s lives Advocacy is important, but it is even more important should you have a disability. In this case study I will be expressing my opinion on where an advocate would of helped Sam and his daughter (Lucy) from the movie “I am Sam”. It is quiet chilling that Sam and Lucy did not get help in so many parts of this movie. It really shows you how people can slip through the system when professionals do not recognise intervention from the beginning could actually prevent so much hard ache for many families. Sam had a few people in his life during his journey of parenthood on his own.
Part A The role and challenges of a paid care worker As discussed in TMA01 there are many difficulties and rewards of being a carer for a family member. However, many family carers eventually find it too demanding to carry on with the daily routine of caring, some families are just not capable of providing the adequate and necessary support for their family member to achieve their daily routine and many service users do not have anyone and would be unable to maximise their potential without support and supervision. This is where the role of the paid care worker comes in. Care workers provide care, supervision and support for children, disabled and aged people in residential establishments, hospitals, nursing homes and home care. Home care has developed from what used to be the home help services.
* Parents that have a child with a chronic illness will need access to different resources like health professionals and therapists. * Other services may include legal aid, financial services and women’s refuge. Education: * The age at which a person becomes a sole parent will influence their education and the child’s education. * For young sole parents it is important that they complete their education in order to get a well paid job. * Some schools have programs for pregnant students- Plumpton High School in Western Sydney and Dale School for young mothers in Newcastle.
With everyone’s rights in question, how do you decipher between an elderly persons rights and wishes in a long-term facility and the rights and wishes of their family or spouses? Depending on the condition of the resident this dilemma could be a type of treatment to start or stop or this could be life ending decision. The family members may want the elder to live as long as they possibly can, in some cases, not understanding or not wanting to understand their selfishness. In cases where the elder takes it upon themselves to decide their own fait based on the fact they are living everyday in serious pain could conflict with their family’s wishes. This presents an ethical dilemma for the long-term facility and the nurses who care for these patients.
What are the requirements for and barriers to hospice service? It can be hard on any family when they learn that a loved one is ill, but it can be especially difficult to learn that their loved one is terminally ill. (A terminal person is defined as person who is expected to live six months or less.) Upon finding out that, a loved one is terminally ill, a decision would need to be made on the treatment of the end-of- life care they would need. The most common treatment available is hospice. Hospice is a program that provides the patient with medical services and both the patient and their family with emotional support and spiritual resources.
Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. Research shows that parents of a child diagnosed with ASD either stop or reduce work compared to parents of a child that is not diagnosed with ASD. This is due to the fact that someone has to take care of the child and most times it is the parents that do so. The parents also have to drive the child to see different doctors in order to help treat the ASD even though there is no known treatment as of yet. This takes even more time out of their lives.
Later Adulthood Development Ericka Estrada BSHS/325 January 17, 2014 Alma Carpio Later Adulthood Development Later adulthood is the last major segment of the life span. The age of 65 has usually been cited as the dividing line between middle age and old age (Charles H. Zastrow, 2010). All humans that are born will age and develop health, mental, and physical problems. As people age they need to be under care that will keep them safe and comfortable without having to worry about how they are going to make it another day. When having a member of the family that is aging such as a father, mother or grandparent we need to be supportive and honor their decisions when it comes to their retirement or if they need assisted living.
This leave little room for doctor’s to spend time at the bedside of their patients. As frustrating enough as it is for doctors, it will be even more frustrating for patients who will be facing limited access and choice. The P.P.A.C.A is certainly bad for doctors, but it is the patients who suffer the most (n. d.). My overall opinion on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that it will be beneficial to Americans today, tomorrow, and years to come. The reason I say this is because families now have the option to keep their children on their insurance up to age 26.
