Assessment of general ease of movement and gait (body)
Mr Jarvis’s increased confidence with mobility and willingness to mobilise (mind)
Mr Thomas Jarvis, a 78 year old gentleman has made the decision to move into an aged care facility after being assessed by the Aged Care Assessment team (ACAT) following the recent death of his wife Matilda. Mr Jarvis has three adult children and five grandchildren.
Mr Jarvis is a longstanding asthmatic with a history of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension. Two months previous to taking up residence, Mr Jarvis had a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) requiring hospitalisation and six weeks rehabilitation. Following the CVA, Mr Jarvis has experienced difficulty communicating due to dysphasia. Whilst there is no problem with Mr Jarvis’s comprehension, he becomes frustrated at times at his inability to communicate.
Mr Jarvis has a right sided hemiparesis and requires assistance with activities of daily living (ADL). Mr Jarvis has also indicated that he is constipated and has not had his bowels opened for the past two days.
