QUESTION 5

Elsie has dementia. She is a resident in a high-care nursing home. She needs significant help with personal care, including showering, grooming, dressing, feeding, toileting and transferring.

Damien is a young man with MS. He has sound cognitive ability but is dependent on his wife for assistance with all activities of daily living. His wife needs to go to hospital so she has arranged for home nursing while she is unable to look after Damien. Damien will tell the carers what he requires and how he likes things to be done.

Jessie cares for her mother, Maria, who lives next door to her. Maria is frail but has full cognitive function and is able to undertake most activities of daily living without assistance. Jessie is having a baby in four weeks’ time.

Jessie has arranged for her mother to go into respite care for a month after the baby is born so she has some time to recover from the birth and get used to her role as a mother. She is relieved that Maria will be safe and have meals cooked for her.

In approximately 100 words, describe the differences between the giving of personal care for each of these situations.

Is it a ‘one-size fits all’ approach, or is care planned for the individual needs of each client?

QUESTION 6

Molly is feeling a bit down today. She is feeling old and tired. You spend time with her doing her hair and helping her to put on a bit of make up. She then asks if you would do her nails for her. When you have finished, she looks in the mirror and smiles.

How has this helped Molly’s health and wellbeing?

QUESTION 10

Barry is in his 50s. He has had a stroke, which has affected his right side and restricted his movement. He cannot use his right hand to grip. He can walk with a stick. His wife left him last year – she used to do all the cooking.

Barry is depressed and feels he can’t do anything for himself. His daughter tries to persuade him to do things for himself more.

He has personal care to get him up in the morning, shower him and get him a cup of tea. He has meals on wheels which he hates but is not able to make food for himself, or even a cup of tea.

Barry’s care has been reviewed and the occupational therapist visits Barry in the home and suggests she works with him to improve his ability to do his activities of daily living.

She arranges a microwave for him and shows him how to use it. She also arranges a tipper for the kettle so that he does not need to grip it.

The OT builds up his experience with the kettle and the microwave. As he gains confidence with this he also learns how to make simple dishes on the stove. A nutritionist visits to provide advice to Barry about the importance of good nutrition.

A friend visits after a month and is surprised when Barry dishes up sausages and mash and a big fresh salad for lunch washed down with a mug of tea. He notices that Barry seems a lot less depressed.

  1. How has this reablement approach assisted Barry with his health and wellbeing?
  1. What may have been the consequence if Barry had continued in the way that he was?

QUESTION 11

CASE STUDY:IRIS

Iris receives Home and Community Care Services to provide her with personal care services.

The HACC worker visits three times a week to shower Iris. She also has cleaning services once a week. The cleaners only do the bathroom and toilet as Iris has been able to manage vacuuming, dusting and general cleaning herself.

Iris has recently had a hip replacement. She is out of hospital and is now recovering at home. The HACC worker has called to discuss whether her services are now adequate.

She says that she doesn’t feel up to heavy work, but would still like to do as much cleaning as she is able to. She also finds standing at the stove to cook her meals difficult.

She has received some equipment from the hospital to help her – a raised toilet seat and a front-wheeled walker. Iris says that she is not sure how she will go in the shower because she feels a bit unsteady.

If your assessor sees that you have not shown appropriate skills or knowledge, or receives feedback from your supervisor that you did not show appropriate skills or knowledge, they will give you some feedback and you will need to do the specific task again.

INSTRUCTIONS:

For this task you need to provide personal care support for at least two clients in your workplace, as set out in their individualised care plans.

Each of the following tasks must be demonstrated at least once during the care that you provide:

  • Bed bathing
  • Showering
  • Oral hygiene
  • Grooming
  • Shaving
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Eating and drinking
  • Using aids and equipment – such as hoists, wheelchairs, walkers, lift chairs, motorised beds, crutches, Toileting and/or use of continence aids.

Note: You do not have to do each task twice – for example, you might bed-bath client 1 and shower client 2.

Note: you will need to obtain permission from your clients and your workplace supervisor for your assessor to observe you doing these activities. See ‘Alternative arrangements’ below for further information.

A qualified care worker (for example, your supervisor) must supervise your provision of care services and confirm the tasks to be performed by completing the checklist at the end of this task.

Make sure you give this checklist to them before you start.

Alternative arrangements:

In some cases it may not be possible for your assessor to observe all of these personal care needs, either due to privacy issues or due to the care not being needed by the client during your assessor’s workplace visit.

Your assessor will ask you to explain, in detail, each of the procedures related to the tasks they did not observe during their workplace visit.

You must record in the journal at the end of this task any personal support activity provided that was not observed by your assessor during their visit and observation. You must provide a detailed account of what you did, the steps you took, how you communicated with the client and how you made them feel at ease during the process.

Each entry in your journal must be signed off and dated by your supervisor to confirm it is an accurate record of what happened.

Your assessor and/or supervisor will be looking to see that you:

Correctly undertake each personal care support activity.

Check and confirm each client’s individual care plan to work out their needs. Make sure you are able to do the tasks.

Respond respectfully and appropriately to each client’s needs.

For example: Consider their culture – is it acceptable for you to assist with bathing, toileting and dressing; How is their hearing?; What is their vision like?; Are they able to speak?; What are they physically capable of doing (for example, they may be able to dry their upper body, but leaning down to dry their legs or feet could be painful or difficult); Does your client have dementia (for example, if the care activity is performed in the late afternoon, they may become agitated)?

Introduce yourself to each client on your arrival and talk to them about the personal care task you will be helping them with.

For example: Greet them warmly; Tell them your name; Tell them what you are there to do; Find out how they like to do the task or if they need something specific (for example, a client may have skin allergies/ sensitivities and needs a special type of soap or lotion).

Make sure your clients are comfortable with the process before you start.

For example: ask clients if they have a preferred order in which to do things; Help the client pick out their clothes and lay them out in order before showering/bathing. Also consider ways in which to avoid embarrassment, fear, disempowerment and humiliation. This may include giving the client some privacy when requested, allowing them to wash certain parts of their body, encouraging them to do certain tasks (for example, put the toothpaste on the brush, dry their upper body, etc), not showing disgust when assisting with toileting or bathing, and so on.

Protect each client’s privacy and dignity.

For example: Knock before entering the client’s room; ask them if it is okay to come in; be respectful when assisting with toileting (for example, a client may have to use incontinence pads and may be embarrassed about this); allow the client to wash parts of their body if they do not want you to do so.

Assess the environment and the task to be performed for health and safety risks.

For example, risks might include: slips, trips and falls hazards (for example, when showering or bathing); skin injury (for example, when shaving); oral safety (for example, removal of dentures, tooth-brushing techniques); own personal safety (for example, use of gowns, gloves and other relevant PPE applicable to tasks you are assisting with, risk of slips, trips and falls); cleanliness of facilities being used (such as toilets, baths, showers, basins etc); condition of items being used (for example, are the toothbrush bristles in good condition, what do you do if the client drops the toothbrush on the floor, is there enough toilet paper, soap, towels and so on).

Talk to your supervisor about any risks you identify and what to do about them.

For example: ‘I saw that Rohit’s shower doesn’t have a non-slip mat. Has someone taken it, where do I get a new one?’; ‘The towels in the bathroom are damp, can I please have some clean and dry ones?’; ‘Geoff’s razor looks a bit blunt. Can I have please have a new one?’

§

Gather all equipment and aids you will need to do the task. Make adjustments as necessary.

For example: Showering: non-slip mat, towels, face washers, soap, shampoo and conditioner etc ; Grooming: razor, shaving cream, aftershave lotion etc; Oral care: floss, toothpaste, toothbrush, glass/tumbler, denture brush, soaking container, etc.

§

Communicate appropriately with each client during the activity.

For example: Use their name when you talk to them; explain what you are doing at each step ; encourage their participation to do tasks that are within their ability; observe their body language, reactions and the things they say; ask them if they are okay or if they need anything in particular; reassure them if they become agitated or concerned.

§

Use correct infection control techniques.

For example: Consider the health of your clients ; consider your own health; correct hand washing techniques; wear gloves or gowns as required; clean up bodily fluids immediately.

§

Use correct manual handling techniques.

For example: When helping clients out of bed; when helping clients on and off of the toilet; when helping clients in and out of the shower; when bending down or leaning; when doing repetitive movements ; using mechanical aids when required.

§

Talk to your supervisor about any issues you had with providing support and the impact that providing support can have on clients.

For example: One client resisted getting dressed because they decided that they didn’t like the clothing they chose earlier, and nothing else was good enough; a client with dementia became distressed and did not recognise themselves in the mirror; one client demanded to do a task that you know they were physically not capable of doing; one client was embarrassed because they had an accident and didn’t get to the toilet in time.

§

Complete all required documentation.

For example: Note in each client’s care plan the type of care provided ; note any observations made or issues encountered; sign and date all documents.

§

Store documentation in line with your workplace’s procedures.

For example: save documents on electronic file system; file hard copy documents.
