Case of Elderly Couple

500 words with Bible ref also

Case of Elderly Couple

Thread: Read the Case Study below and then answer the following questions:

  1. Consider Lydia’s and John’s cognitive and physical limitations  as well as their social support. If you were presenting this case to a  team of other human services providers, what developmental theories,  concepts, and principles help explain this case? (Use the readings from  Modules/Weeks 7–8 to help you answer this question).
  2. What other information might you need to fully evaluate the situation in which Lydia and John live?
  3. If you were the protective service worker, what are the options  for this couple? Identify several feasible plans with explanation and  support from a source of information. Include the risks and benefits of  each option. Then, identify what your final recommendation would be and  why.

Case Study

Lydia and John were a couple in their nineties who lived in  their own home and had been married over sixty years. Both were confused  and forgetful. They had two sons who were in their seventies and lived  in nearby towns. One son was estranged from them. The other was somewhat  involved in their lives, but he had a mentally ill wife and health  problems of his own to deal with. The couple first came to the attention  of a protective service worker when John was hospitalized after a fall.  When left on her own, Lydia’s confusion became more pronounced. A  referral was made for home care services, but, when a worker went out to  assess the couple, their son was present and refused services. Based on  concerns of benign neglect, a protective services report was issued. A  case worker investigated and substantiated the report, citing the son’s  interference with services and the couple’s own inability to provide  adequate care for each other. The protective services worker found both  John and Lydia to be very forgetful and somewhat confused, though Lydia  was the more impaired. Due to their increased physical frailty, they had  been using only the first floor of their home. Since the bedrooms and  bathroom were upstairs, the living arrangement presented several  problems for the couple. Lydia had a regular bed, but John was sleeping  on a cot. The low height of the cot caused him to lose his balance  easily, resulting in several falls. Since there was no toilet  downstairs, they were using a bucket in the kitchen and emptying it  outside. They were unable to maintain their home and conditions became  unsanitary. The son tried to help, but he had his own limitations. The  elderly couple was well able to afford assistance, but they did not want  to spend the money. Furthermore, even though the son who helped with  paying the bills was not taking advantage of his parents financially, he  was obviously concerned with “preserving his inheritance.” Meanwhile,  John and Lydia were extremely conservative in terms of how they chose to  spend their money; they insisted they could not afford help.

DISCUSSION 2: CONTEMPLATING YOUR FUTURE

The NASW Code of Ethics makes a number of statements about social workers’ responsibility to study, use, and engage in research and evaluation. In the past, many social workers had difficulty thinking of themselves as knowledgeable and capable in research, despite completing the required research course in school. Think of yourself as a part of a new breed of social workers. You are completing your education at a point in time that places great emphasis on both research and evaluation. You also have greater access to published research than ever before. Research knowledge and skills are like muscles—if you do not use them, they will atrophy. You have an ethical obligation as a social worker to exercise and flex your research muscle. Consider how the NASW Code of Ethics guides your professional research.

By Day 4

Post an analysis of how you can apply new knowledge and skills related to research and evaluation, acquired in this course to your future career. Identify specific knowledge and strategies and how you intend to apply them. Identify those skills that you believe will be most applicable to achieving your future goals.
