This had obviously been very difficult time and I was aware that the birth of a new baby within the family may have come with mixed emotions. SCENARIO Prior to the visit I had received a telephone handover from the new Mother’s midwife, who had explained this had been an uneventful pregnancy and straight forward delivery. However her sister had very recently given birth, which had tragically resulted in the baby dying shortly afterwards. The midwife explained this had created anxieties about her new baby and that whilst she appeared to doing okay it was something to be mindful of. This highlights again the importance of collaborative working and effective handovers ( ).
Module 2 Assignment 2: Income Support Policies The United States has many different programs that can help families and individuals that are in need. These programs or policies are to help people in poverty and to keep them from being homeless and starving. No one likes to see someone suffering and that is why they have made different welfare options for a person to apply for if needed. SSI or supplemental security income is an income support policy for people that are 65 years old or for a person that has a disability who is unable to work to support themselves. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) is another government policy that helps needy families with assistance and work opportunities and promotes work, responsibility and self-sufficiency.

Frank may identified himself as the main carer for his wife but he has no energy to leave the house and he doesn’t drive. Len Doyal and Ian Gough ‘’Theory of human needs’’ (Keynes, 2010) argue that physical health, survival and autonomy are basic, failure result in serious psychological harm. Intermediate needs may include food, water, safe physical, work environment and access to appropriate health care. Doyal and Gough argue that people need to have
Now parents of children are now encouraged to visit their child regularly in hospital. Paternity leave is now offered to fathers as well as maternity leave to encourage the formation of attachment. From psychological research we have also learnt the good features of good quality day care. Low child to staff ratios are key so then the staff can provide the sensitive care needed. The NICHD study (1999) recommends a ratio of 3:1 with UK Government legislation stating that there must be 1 member for every 8 children.
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.
Antonio and Jennifer have both suffered a huge loss which could put strain on the relationship if they are not emotionally supportive of each other. Jennifer is also suffering the loss of her mother and is faced with putting her father in a nursing care facility. Antonio needs to be there to comfort and support Jennifer, if not their relationship may begin to fall apart. Jennifer’s relationship with her father is being compromised because she may have to place him in a home. Jennifer takes pride in not letting people down, she probably feels like she will be letting her father down if she has to place him in a nursing care facility against his will.
In Home Daycare and Daycare Centers Jean Johnson ENG 121 Vanessa Martin July 7, 2011 In-home Daycare and Daycare Centers Choosing an in-home daycare or daycare center for your child is certainly a big task and a stressful one for many parents. There are so many daycares out there and a mixture of in-home daycares and daycare centers that it can seem like a full time job just finding the right one for your child. However, it truly is worth the effort to find that home away from home so your child will feel comfortable while you are away. Some of the differences of both centers and in home daycares will be discussed to help you make the best decision for your child. In-home daycares tend to have fewer children and will be more geared toward the personal needs of each child.
Limiting the say a child care provider has in the upbringing of the children whom the care is provided for will cause confusion between the child, caregiver and parents. Limiting the say childcare providers have in the upbringing of the children, whom the care is provided for, can cause confusion between the child, caregiver and parents. Children are like sponges soaking up every bite of knowledge introduced to them. The person providing their primary care generally introduces a child’s knowledge to them. Parents want time to care for their children and often work life does not permit that.
However, this is hardly the case. Caregiving poses its challenges and demands that if not addressed properly and in a timely manner can negatively impact the lives not only of the person being cared for, but the caregiver as well. According to the Emblem Health article published in 2012, “Cargiving requires an enormous physical and emotional commitment…each caregiver situation is unique, yet all share universal experiences that encompass physical, emotional, and spiritual concerns.” Fortunately, “Caregiver Support” programs have been developed to alleviate caregiver stress, enable caregivers to better cope with the demands of caring for their loved ones, and improve caregiver and care recipient outcome. One such “program” that provides the caregiver with easy and simple tips/techniques is detailed in the July 2011 publication offered by AARP titled “10 Ways to Deal with Caregiver Stress”. In the following, I will summarize the highpoints of the above article:
