Introduction

Katie-May Hall Btec Diploma in Health and Social Care Unit 2: Individual Needs within the Health and Social Care Sectors P1 Case Study Holly is a 47-year-old woman who has been divorced for 6 years so she is now a single parent with the sole care of her two daughters who are aged 8 and 10. Her marriage was good in the early days, but became troubled when her ex-husband started drinking and became violent. Because of the violence she became estranged from her family so she moved to rural Lincolnshire for a fresh start and to provide a secure and new beginning for her two daughters. The school her daughters attend is a local village school with only 100 pupils and her girls enjoy going there. She enjoys time with her children and is very close to them, and they are happy not having contact with their father. The house she rents is a basic two bedroomed terraced home with a small garden it is very old but in fairly good condition. Because of its age and rural location she has no central heating but has storage heaters that are expensive to run, the landlord has recently installed UPVC double-glazing but the home remains cold in winter. The rent is fair for the area and she gets housing benefit to contribute to the costs. ...read more.

Conclusion

And we start to look for that life partner. We all need some emotional support as this contributes to improving our self-esteem. Social These needs are met through interaction with other people, forming bonds and making friendships is important to our social advancement. We feel depressed and lonely when close relationships break down. By wanting to advance and enhance our need to be good at our job, to want to study and do well will also enhance our social needs. By applying the PIES theory to my case study Holly, I feel she has all her Physical needs met, she live in a house that provides her with security and warmth, she has a job that provides income and with benefits she can pay the bills. She has met the intellectual needs and is stimulated at work, but I feel these could be improved by having hobbies outside of work and by improving her education. By living with her daughters she has met the Emotional needs however she is missing that important person in her life to get some personal emotional needs. Social needs are also minimal by only having interaction with work colleagues, by improving her skills at college these needs could be improved by giving her access to other jobs and also finding new friends and openings to hobbies. So, I place Holly as only having her Physical needs met and a good change in her overall lifestyle could improve her lifetime needs in all directions. 1 ...read more.
