QUESTION 23
Choose three problematic issues that are currently facing older people living in the community. Write one
paragraph for each issue that describes how it impacts on the health and wellbeing of older people.

Issue 1:
Physical and Mental Health

Many older adults maintain good health and are fully able to function both physically
and mentally well into their later years. However, the biological effects of aging do lead
to more physical and mental health problems among the senior population than in
younger age groups. As we age, muscles and bones begin to weaken, we lose eyesight
and hearing, and mobility often becomes limited.

Issue 2:
Health Care Costs/Nursing Home Care

Older adults visit the doctor and stay in the hospital more often than other age groups.
Medicare helps cover some health care costs for seniors, however most are left to pay
for about half of their medical bills on their own, which can cost thousands of dollars
each year.

454929448.DOCX CHC33015 CERTIFICATE III IN INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT


Apex Training Institute Page 38
Issue 3:
Bereavement, Social Isolation, and Loneliness

Seniors tend to have fewer opportunities for social engagement than younger age
groups. They retire from jobs, children move away, friends and spouses pass away, and
eventually they may become housebound if they lose the ability to drive or become ill.

QUESTION 24
a) What is meant by the term ‘normal’ ageing’? How can attitude and a healthy lifestyle influence the impact
of the normal ageing process both physically and psychosocially?

The Aging Process: Normal Aging. The aging process happens during all stages of an individual's life span.
The changes aging individuals experience are not necessarily harmful. With age, hair thins and turns gray.
Skin thins, becomes less elastic, and sags.

It is important to eat a balanced diet for health and wellbeing. Good nutrition and regular meals combined
with physical activity can improve your strength and help fight infection. Eating a variety of healthy foods
can improve your energy levels and help you maintain a healthy weight.

a) What is meant by the term ‘ageing in place’?

454929448.DOCX CHC33015 CERTIFICATE III IN INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT


Apex Training Institute Page 39
Aging in place is a term used to describe a person living in the residence of their choice, for as long as they
are able, as they age. This includes being able to have any services (or other support) they might need over
time as their needs change.

454929448.DOCX CHC33015 CERTIFICATE III IN INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

QUESTION 25
a) Participating in the community is important for many people. As people age, community engagement can
often become more difficult. Think of a person you know who is elderly or disabled, or imagine yourself as
elderly and frail.
What types of community participation do you think is important so an aged person can engage socially
and undertake their tasks of daily living? What challenges are there?

b) Choose one of the challenges that you identified above. What support could be provided to someone with
this challenge so they could continue their community participation?

central to our national identity. In 1975, the Racial Discrimination Act came into force, making discrimination
in different parts of public life against the law

QUESTION 29
a) What does a cultural interpreter do?
A cultural mediator/interpreter/translator plays a critical role in facilitating successful communication with
students and families who speak a language other than English. An interpreter is an individual to translates
spoken language from one language to another.

454929448.DOCX CHC33015 CERTIFICATE III IN INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT


Apex Training Institute Page 44
b) What is the role of a language interpreter?

An interpreter's role is to facilitate communication between two or more people who use different

but is responsible for ensuring that everything that is said is communicated accurately in the other
language.

QUESTION 30

needed to resolve it.

Strategy 1: Ask for frequent expansion on points that you are unfamiliar with, especially if they relate to

CASE STUDY 1 – CLAUDE AND RAY
Claude is a new client at New Greens Aged Care Facility. He has come into aged care as he has had a
stroke and his male partner Ray is no longer able to look after him. Claude is finding it very difficult to adjust
to life at the facility. Ray’s sister brings him in to visit Claude once a month as he is unable to drive, but she
has never been able to accept their homosexual relationship. After 20 minutes or so she insists on leaving.
Claude confides to his carer that he misses Ray terribly. He might as well not come to visit anymore as his
sister glares daggers at them if they so much as hold hands and says they are disgusting. He would so
love just to share some love and affection.

1. What effect do you think Claude’s separation from Ray is having on his emotional well-being?

2. What effect do you think Ray’s sister is having on Claude’s emotional and psychological well-being?

problems. List two organisations and provide their web addresses.

Ray and Claude manage to get some time together – in fact, Ray is going to stay overnight. A trundle bed
has been wheeled into Claude’s room for him to sleep in.

5. Apart from supplying a trundle bed, what support could you give Claude to provide a suitable environment
where they will feel secure, private and comfortable?

You notice that Claude is setting out a lot of candles. While you think that is very romantic you are
concerned about the risk of fire – especially as there are so many of them. When you tell Claude that this is
a safety risk he gets very discouraged – the lights in the room are so bright and sterile.

6. What could you suggest as a safer alternative?

Claude is much happier now Ray is able to visit regularly. However the other day they got a bit carried
away in the dining room and offended some of the other residents who complained that their behavior was
putting them off their dinner!

7. How would you deal with this problem?

Barry retaliates by accusing Ahmed of taking time off all the time to ‘pray on his stupid prayer mat’.
Janice responds by saying, ‘For God’s sake, why can’t you just be normal like the rest of us?’

CASE STUDY 5 – FADI
Fadi’s son has put in a formal complaint about the food that is served to his father. Fadi told his son that the
food is mainly western style, is very dull and often tough. As he is a Muslim, Fadi does not eat pork.
The staff always provide another alternative when pork is on the menu but yesterday, when pork sausages
were on the menu, the only alternative was fish – which Fadi’s has never liked.
When he said he didn’t want sausages or fish he was told he would have to have a Vegemite sandwich
instead. This is hardly enough for the main meal of the day!
There are many different nationalities and it is impossible for every cultural food requirement to be catered
for all the time. But the kitchen is keen to help out as much as they can so long as it is within their tight
budget.

1. What rights does Fadi have?

24. What process should be undertaken to investigate this complaint?

CASE STUDY 6 – RACHELLA
Rachella is one of your clients. Rachella suffers from anxiety and depression for while she takes medication
and is monitored by her GP. Rachella also has counselling once per fortnight.
Today Rachella is very fidgety. She is pacing up and down, seemingly in a world of her own. When you ask
her if she is OK she snaps at you and says “Of course I’m not all right – nothing is all right. You know
nothing!! No-one can help me – I’m sick of everything – I just can’t go on anymore”.
When you ask what the matter is she gets angry and tells you to just leave her alone.

1. From her manner you think that she may be suicidal – you know that she has attempted suicide once
before. As a personal care attendant this is beyond the role of your job. What will you do?

27. What action needs to be taken to protect Rachella from harm until medical help can be obtained?
