Give an example to support your answer.A1: Q4 – Name two practices that focus on the individual person and briefly explain each approach. Case Study: Jeremy is 32 and for the last six months he has been living in supported accommodation around the corner from his mum’s house where he had lived with her all his life. Jeremy is tall, well-built and has a moderate intellectual disability. His mum, Ruby, is still his guardian and loves him tremendously. She did everything for him all his life before age and various health conditions meant that she could no longer properly support him.Consequently, Jeremy is not very ‘streetwise’ although he has thrived in his new living situation. He loves having the freedom to choose when he gets up and goes to bed and what he eats. He shares the chores and facilities with five other housemates as well as a staff member. His housemates are a diverse group, but they generally get along quite well. Dennis, a cantankerous, 63-year-old with a serious gambling habit, is the oldest housemate and he has adopted a fatherly attitude towards Jeremy since they have been living together. Dennis keeps telling Jeremy to take heed of what he says because ‘I’m an old coot and I been around the traps’.Dennis is vision impaired with only about 50 per cent sight in one eye and has bad hips and so is unable to walk far without pain. Dennis often gets Jeremy to do errands on his behalf to the shops and up to the pub to put on a bet. Once, on the way to collect Dennis’ winnings, two schoolkids asked Jeremy to see the betting ticket and when Jeremy handed it over they ran off with it.Despite this, Dennis is always encouraging Jeremy to ‘spread his wings’ and ‘get out on his own’. He says that Jeremy should set himself up and find himself a girlfriend. Jeremy talks to Dennis a lot about girls.The next time Jeremy visits his mum, he asks if she can organise the money for him to rent his own flat. Ruby tells Jeremy that she thinks he isn’t ready to make such a big move on his own. Jeremy tells her that Dennis has offered to share the place with him, at least until he ‘finds his feet’. Q1 – Do you think that Jeremy is ready for the independence he seeks? Explain your answer.Q2- Explain the power Dennis and Ruby each have to influence Jeremy.Q3 – How are Dennis and Jeremy interdependent? Case Study 2: Gloria is 55 and a former windsurfing state champion. She has had a stroke that has significantly limited her ability to control the left side of her body. She has trouble gripping anything with her left hand and cannot rotate her wrist.She was shocked by the stroke; beforehand she had always kept herself incredibly fit and active. She is very keen to have things ‘get back to normal’ which for her involves going for a daily surf, jogging at least twice a week and taking her windsurfer out when the conditions are right.Gloria is very strong willed and determined and tells her friends that she is not ready for ‘just sitting in a chair and watching the waves roll in right now’. She is adamant that she will windsurf again. Gloria has a number of assessments as part of her rehabilitation by physiotherapists, occupational therapists and neurologists all of whom have given her advice to aid her recovery. She has physiotherapy twice a week and is making good progress, although it is not fast enough for her.She is happy that she can get herself out of the house at least and is now able to walk to the local shops. Q1 – What challenges does Gloria facea) internally (mentally)b) externally (physically)?Q2- What tools, equipment or supports would you suggest for Gloria that would help her achieve her goals? A5: Explain how each of the examples below would motivate a person:Being recognised by their peers or the community; teacher, trainer, recreational officer congratulating them.Finding they can achieve things for themselves that give greater independence.Being told how much they have grown and developed, seeing their progress towards a personal goal.Having a crowd of people tell them they have done well, being clapped or applauded.Special outings such as going to the football, special food or favourite meal, a new piece of equipment, game, electronic device.A6: List 6 ways people learn and give an example of how each strategy could help a person to learn a new skill. Case Study 3: Justin lives alone, recently moving into a unit that is one of six in a complex. He has met most of his neighbours already but has not talked to them much because he has a hearing impairment and most people have trouble understanding his speech at first.He has been working for a paper recycling company in the same depot for eight years receiving waste paper that is collected. He works the sorting or bundling machines. Once bundled, the huge blocks of paper get compacted, ready to be taken to a treatment plant.While his hearing impairment has affected his speech acquisition, Justin gets by lip-reading and using keyword signing with most of his co-workers and factory supervisor. A new co-worker, Ethan, is totally deaf and has started teaching Justin some Auslan. The work environment is very noisy with industrial machinery, delivery trucks and forklifts operating throughout the day. Each of the forklifts and machines has visual signals (flashing lights) when they are operating.Recently his hearing was re-assessed and a new type of hearing aid was recommended for him. Trials with the device have been mixed. Around home the device has worked well but in his workplace the aid picks up interference and Justin finds the amplified and distorted sounds very uncomfortable and off-putting. He doesn’t like wearing it as it is obtrusive and Justin has his head shaved which makes the device very apparent.He leaves the batteries out or switches the aid off when he goes to work, preferring things the way they were without the aid. Q1: How does Justin communicate in his workplace?Q2: Identify the dignity of risk decision Justin makes in this situation and explain whether his decision has affected his safety at work.
