Assessment Instrument 3-Research activity1
Think of a change that might happen to an older person as part of the ageing process. It can be a physical, cognitive, social or emotional change. Think about your own work role and responsibilities. Think about the policies and procedures that might apply in the workplace.
Write one A4 page of notes to explain the following:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ The details of the change
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ How this change might affect their activities of daily living
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ How you would talk to the older person and/or their advocate about the change
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ How you would help the person manage the change in the most positive way possible
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Any risks which might be a part of the change
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ How you would help the older person manage the risk
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Any information you would need to write down or share with others about the change
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ You may choose to write your answer as a whole page report. You may prefer to divide Your work into short paragraphs with headings.
