Case Scenario

A woman with an intellectual disability lives with her mother and cannot stay at home alone. She has a job with the Salvation Army, and gets to work with public transportation that picks her up at 8:00 a.m. and brings her home at 5:30 p.m. Her mother is elderly and has fallen and possibly broken her hip. The prognosis is that the mother will have to stay at a rehabilitation facility for at least four weeks. Think about the information you would need to include in developing a tentative care plan for this client based on information from this week’s readings. For your initial post, create and post a short case scenario based on a serious situation that needs to be resolved fairly quickly by a case manager. Use the above scenario as an example. Include details such as economic situation, age, diversity, culture, or dependency issues.
