Tutor description

Upon interview with the patient, she is anxious and continually asking where her husband is and who is looking after him. She is the primary caregiver of her husband who has Alzheimer's disease. Whenever she moves, she grimaces and moan. Though she denies any pain, however her outward expression denotes otherwise. She avoids any question related to her current situation and insist on seeing her husband. It is very apparent that she is anxious for her husband’s well being. It is a priority for her to know that he is taken care of. He is her priority and as her nurse that makes it my priority as well. Anxiety can lead to stress. Not knowing who is looking after her husband is very stressful for the patient, hence it is affecting her cooperation to the assessment and upcoming procedure. By addressing this need and letting her know that a social worker will be arranged, the patients worried face subsided and she has since calmed down allowing me to proceed with my assessment.
