Case Study Response to Chronic Illness

 

Tasks: QU025400 Management of Ill Health

 

This assignment requires completion of one task.

 

Task:  A response to a set case study.  1,500 words (+/- 10%)

 

Daisy is 42 years old and lives with her husband, Tony, in a large 4-bedroomed house. Daisy has multiple sclerosis, is housebound and moves no further than her bed and chair. This means that she spends most of her time in a converted downstairs bedroom. Tony occupies one of the bedrooms upstairs. Daisy was diagnosed 10 years ago, but the disease has progressed quite quickly. The couple has no children or no pets.

 

Daisy is a qualified physiotherapist and her husband is a primary school teacher. Tony is finding it hard coming to terms with Daisy’s disabling condition and as a result they spend very little time together. He also worries about now having only one salary and meeting the financial demands of managing a large house. Tony will often not allow the heating to be put on, even though Daisy complains of being cold.

 

Daisy’s mood is often quite low when the carers visit. She also sometimes gets angry with the carers as she feels they don’t always understand her needs.

 

Guidance:

 

For the response to this case study you need to analyse the following:

        The physical changes brought on by this disease, summarising the signs and symptoms that may present.

        The treatment options available and the likely prognosis of the disease.

        The psychological impact on both the patient and her husband and carers.

        The support needs of the individual patient in this case, detailing how these support needs could be met.
