Nelly is unable to walk has limited strength in her hands and arms. She finds it frustrating that she needs to wait for the support workers to arrive 9 am to open the curtains, turn on the lights and TV and she is awake for hours before they arrive. Nelly is also finding it difficult to hold a knife and fork due to weakness in her hands and reaching out to her bedside table when she needs a drink.

Timothy has a tendency towards manipulative behaviour. He has a habit of asking for extra food from one support worker Mary. When Mary says ‘No, breakfast is over’ Timothy then approaches another worker, Natalie, saying, “Mary said you would go to the kitchen for me’. The attempt to divide workers is a feature of Timothy’s behaviour.
21. Case Study 3
You are working with Anita who has bipolar disorder resulting in ‘mood swings’. When she feels good she is engaged and likes craft activities. However, when she is involved and enthusiastic about these activities, she stays up late and often forgets to eat and drink for over 24-hours. When people comment that she should take things easy, she misinterprets their message as criticism and becomes sensitive and distressed. Her mood changes and she then wants to sleep the whole day and eats poorly.
22. Case Study 4
James has lived in the group home that you work in for five years. James is 22 and has autism. He is well settled and fully participates in all the activities and often helps organise activities. He is well liked by staff and clients alike; though some feel he takes his self importance as ‘the organiser’ too far.
One afternoon after a weekly outing James is found in the corridor arguing violently with a new resident, Bruce. You are first on the scene and manage to separate the two men and organise another carer to talk with Bruce while you sit with James. James indicates that he was angry because Bruce wouldn’t sit where he told him to. You realise you have heard this type of comment several times from James in the past few months.
