Case study (questions 1–7)

Lenny recently moved into a 96-bed aged care home in the town he has lived in for the past 20 years. The home is a non-profit organisation run by one of the main church groups. Lenny has Parkinson’s disease and is happy that he is still able to move around the home in his wheelchair, mostly unassisted. After Lenny settles in, the lifestyle coordinator meets him to develop a lifestyle plan. The coordinator finds out that Lenny is a practising Buddhist and has enjoyed a long relationship with the local Buddhist community.

The coordinator gives Lenny an outline of the aged care home’s programs that are run throughout the week. She invites Lenny to join in as she can organise a worker to help Lenny to get to the various rooms where the activities/programs are held. A few of the programs centre on the chaplain’s programs. Lenny explains that he isn’t interested in attending those activities and asks what activities are in place for Buddhists. The coordinator says Lenny is only one of three residents who follows a Buddhist faith and given the organisation was initiated by the church, they don’t offer anything other than the programs that are currently run. Lenny tells the coordinator that he would like his information to remain private.

The next day, Lenny is having lunch in the dining room when a personal care assistant asks him to come to the church program, explaining it isn’t a religious service but more a discussion group. The worker then states that she knows Lenny isn’t religious but she thinks he may enjoy the activity. Lenny feels embarrassed as others in the dining room overhear the conversation. He leaves the table and decides to have his evening meal in his room that night.

Case study (questions 8–12)

David is a worker with a local support service. He supports Geoff who has muscular dystrophy and is non-ambulant. David supports him with his personal hygiene and most of his daily living activities. Part of Geoff’s support plan includes going to the local footy once a fortnight. However, this weekend the grand final is being held at the main football ground in town.

When Geoff and David get to the football ground, David sees a few of his mates sitting up in the stand. They wave David up to sit with them. David asks Geoff if he would mind if he sat with his friends. Geoff says he is happy to sit on the side as he is not able to get up to where David’s friends are sitting. The footy game is great but later that night Geoff becomes angry that David left him on his own to watch the game. He decides that he is going to sue David for breach of duty of care.
