Unit 2 Section E Health and Social Care

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Introduction To improve my client's health and well being, I have decided to research much further; by asking some additional questions. This will help me concentrate more on the actual main points. By doing this it will hopefully develop and advance her physical condition and welfare. Below are the answers which will help me do so. I anticipate that this piece of data will help me to promote Katherine Lewis's health and well being. Brief introduction Below, I have discussed the points which I need to consider; from the previous information which I have collected. Section Points to consider Positive: * Hard working * Independent * Good status * Excellent job * Reliable Negative: * Over exercises * Doesn't eat much * Not a socializing person * Lacks self-esteem * Doesn't enjoy going out Positive: * Good financial support * Successful business woman * Free will * Tries her best to socialize Negative: * Stressed and anxious * Workaholic * Does not spend enough time with her family * Doesn't eat healthily * Constantly in a bad mood * Over works herself Factors: * Underweight * Anorexic and bulimic Detail questions on my client I. Have you been ill in the last month? Yes II. If yes, what illness was it and how long were you in your poor health? Yes, and I had the flu for about 2 weeks III. Do you think that you are the accurate weight for your height? No, I think that I should gain a few stones, as I am underweight IV. How many times in total, in the last month did you go to the gym? Around 5 times V. Do you enjoy exercising? Yes, I find it very useful and it helps me past time in my spare time VI. How many times a day do you eat a fruit?

Middle

Physically, my client is getting callisthenics, by going to the gym often; by doing some additional exercise at both work and at home; just by sitting down and watching T.V Katherine is getting a workout. Intellectually, Katherine's mind is beginning to become more encouraged. This is mainly because her exercise plan is a very suitable routine- which will enhance her mind, but also relax it as well. Emotionally, she will feel less pressurised by the exercise routines which I have set for her, than the ones she had set for herself before. By knowing that she has a lot of spare time, which she used to waste on exercising and keeping her self fit, she will use the spare time wisely. Thus having free time on her hands, she has the opportunity to have a social activity for that time. Socially, Katherine will have more friends, and more people around her will help her to share her feelings more openly then before. This means that she can socially interact with the outside world more, thus she could begin to work in a team or a group of any sort. STRENGTHS FOR THIS PLAN * The diet plan includes foods from each of the main food groups, therefore they each contain nutrients, and thus the meals are healthy and are equally balanced. * Katherine will gain enough weight, to keep her body mass at an equal position. * Work-outs can improve my client's self-esteem and self-belief, by doing this Katherine will feel more confident on going out and socializing. * Katherine's physical state will advance by the exercise plan. * By keeping up with the long term targets; my client will also be saving a lot of money, as she will not be purchasing any more cigarette packets. Boxes of cigarettes may not seem to be wasting money, however are the easiest way for a smoker to waste a large amount of money. ...read more.

Conclusion

Intellectually: My client now gets up earlier and goes to bed quicker, as this refreshes her for the morning activities which lay ahead of her. This also gives her the opportunity to think straight, and get ready for the challenges which may come ahead of her. She has begun thinking more about the positive things in life, rather than always thinking about the negative sides of things. She has stopped stressing so much about her work and home life, so this gives her a better view upon things, such as how to go solve a problem, or how to spend more time with the family. Her intellectual thinking skills, has improved massively, as she feels more confident about herself. Emotionally: Katherine goes out more, and opens up her feelings much more than she used to. She feels that she has become a more self-assured person, so this encourages her more to go out and spend some time with her family and friends. My client, who used to feel that she had no one to discuss problems with, has now realised that her family and friends are always there to talk to and to confide with. She used to always be depressed, but now has found resolutions to that, and is happier than before. She emotionally is aware that she has many people around her, who will support and provide her with company if she ever needs it. Overall, my client is a supplementary joyful person, than before. Socially: Katherine has now started socializing more than she used to. She invites family and friends over to her house, to get to know them better. This has assisted her a lot, in her socializing skills; she goes out more and has meet many new friends; which are all from different backgrounds. She has the confidence, and the assurance to create a relationship with new people. ?? ?? ?? ?? Mike Weston Health & Social Care Unit 2: Promoting Health & Well Being ...read more.
