Extracts from this document...

Introduction

P5- Explain the care strategies that can be used to support individuals with each of the physiological disorders. A strategy is a plan to deliver services to meet targets; you might prefer to think of this in the form of treatment, therapies or support. To meet this criterion, you need to consider all the types of care treatment and support that there individual is receiving. M3- Discuss the care strategies that can be used to support individuals with each of the physiological disorders. Care strategies Care strategies need to be review regularly over a period of time this is done to ensure that they are in focused on the individual at the centre of the care. Medication that has been given to the individual has to also be reviews as it may have reached its time limit this means that they might become immune to it like some antibiotics people can become immune to so that this drug will not be affective. Checks have to be done to make sure that the medication is still effective and is working correctly and the patient isn?t suffering any side effects. If there are side effects occurring or the individual has become immune to their medication there will be investigations in to which alternative medication can be given to them that won?t react the same. Scans and x-rays may need to be repeated by the people that have put together the care strategy this is done so that if anything has changed that the individual Is getting care for or physic then this can be assessed again if they need this level of care and it can be changed, or on the other hand if the case has gotten worse and they symptoms are worsening then this also can be looked at and things can be done so that the individual is receiving the right care. ...read more.

Also home care can help and individual if they are prone to falling as there mobility can be affected they can be provided with extra support or if they did have a fall because they were unaided around the house by their carer the carer can tend to the individual in a mild case or get in touch with the emergency services if this is needed, this can give reassurance for close friends and family if they are working they know that there relative or friend is safe at home. Day care- Day cares centred are located all over the UK and they provide a place where people with Alzheimer?s can go to visit during the day. This is a safe environment where they can go to and feel safe and secure, this gives family members a piece of mind knowing that they are safe and able to have a good time while being looked after. Care centres are a great way of keeping the individual active and socially engaged, there are many activities provided at the centre which the guests are encouraged to be involved in these include singing clubs, vegetable growing which they can take home, drama, yoga, crafts and art and chicken dove and rabbit keeping this gives them a sense of responsibility and a feeling that they are able to do things with some assistance, also it is important that the individual stays active and able minded . The centres are specially equipped for people with dementia and Alzheimer?s the rooms are decorated specifically for individuals with the disease these special rudiments include special carpets and large clear navigation signs that make moving around as easy as possible for the visitors, because they are more mobile than they would be in their home they may find old skills easier to do in the centres such as gardening and dancing. Within the centres there are carers that make sure the visitors are safe and looked after properly, they can help out ...read more.

Conclusion

Paying to stay in a care home full time can be very expensive the average price of staying within are care home is £26,500 but if the individual would like to go privately then the cost can be a lot more from £50,000 or more. This can be hard for an individual to pay for on their own so they may need financial help. Care homes have also received a lot of bad advertisement as many people have died within them. This can be due to the lack of care being given or even abuse can be going on without anyone picking up on this, as well as inadequate living conditions. There are cases that have been reported within the UK of residents not receiving adequate care for example there toe nails had not been cut for several or longer and resulted in them growing so long they had dug into their skin, some patients had been reported to have gone into the care home without bed sores and had developed numerous bed sores on their lower back and bottom due to the individual not having the right facilities such as air beds and pressure cushions which can relive the pressure form the individuals bottoms as they are sat down most of the day. These incidents have been reported and dealt with by a higher authority. Because of the negative stories that have been leaked into the press and media this can put a lot of individual off going into a care home and it also can make the families and friends worried about the individual when they go into residential care. But overall residential care is very beneficial because it enables the individual’s family to carry on with their life’s knowing that their family members are safe and are being given the correct amount of care. Residential care provides 3 square nutritional meals per day this also ensures to the individuals family and doctors that they are eating properly and if they are rejecting their meals this will be recorded. ...read more.
