I have a client who is appropriate for Assisted Living. She needs showers, is ambulatory, has a little dementia, and seems to be appropriate by the physical assessment. She also has a long history of behavioral problems and has tried to commit suicide.
Is she still appropriate for Assisted Living? why or why not?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The person characterized is evidently experiencing a mental problem. Dementia causes psychosis, Parkinsons disease . This kind of person is suffering from a disease without appropriate cure.
The Answer to the question is that She is still appropriate for Assisted living even though we know the problem may have been caused by accident, trauma,aging and natural disability. The best way to assist living is by exercise programs, Education and emotional support. In conclusion , the person needs assisted living even though he/she is a bad condition.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
