Harold, an Elder, lives in a large remote community in the Northern Territory with his wife, Trish, adult children, grandchildren and some nieces and nephews when needed. He has 3 adult children who all work fulltime to help provide food and necessities for the family. Harold and Trish care for the young children whilst the adults are at work all day, but with Harold’s ailing health his wife is caring for both him and the grandchildren.
Harold is becoming increasingly frustrated with his hospital admissions and medication regime. He has stated to you he is sick and tired and just wants to die at home in community with his family.
Task
Now that Harold has been diagnosed with End Stage Congestive Heart Failure you need to prepare for this discharge back to community.
To ensure Harold is provided with the best care for this stage in his life you need to map Harold’s care plan using the template attached. In your mapping you should consider Harold’s physical, mental, social and emotional wellbeing. For each problem or issue you identify on the map you need to include a goal, intervention, rationale and evaluation.
You will need to develop a summary of care for handover to the community for discharge. This will provide key factors and priorities identified in the care plan to promote Harold’s independence and quality end stage life. You will need to provide justification for your priorities and key factors in your handover summary.
Your handover and care plan mapping should include Harold’s cultural identity.
