Receive a pass grade







Instructions:







Read through the case study scenario and answer the
questions that follow.


































Case Study: Sonny










Sonny sustained a severe

traumatic brain injury due to a motor vehicle accident. He has instability of

knee joints which has reduced his walking endurance. He uses a walking stick

and practices holding himself up in the backyard to improve his confidence and

balance skills.








His blood pressure tends to

rise due to high levels of stress and at other times when he is anxious he

displays signs of depression and withdrawal. Sometimes he talks to himself

and refuses to do anything. His brother Marlo has reported Sonny becoming

more emotionally distressed over the loss of certain friendships since his

accident, and only few have remained around for support. He can have

aggressive outbursts when he becomes overly distressed and asks Marlo for

alcohol or cigarettes as this seems to be the only thing that will calm his

distress. Sonny has mentioned wanting to get a part time job or join a local

club to meet some new people and be able to have a network of friends for

daytime activities.








There are difficulties with

memory, attention, reasoning, and problem solving. Sonny uses his mobile

phone for appointment reminders, a whiteboard at home to assist with

organisation and future planning, and support from his brother in planning,

organising and carrying out weekly activities.








Sonny lives in a Department of

Housing property with his brother Marlo who is currently his primary carer

however Marlo is going to be working full time, and Sonny will now need a

full time carer. The carer will need to assist Sonny with his daily activities

including transportation to attend medical appointments and visits to the

shops. Sonny does not want a replacement carer, and refuses to accept this

change in care.








Some areas of the residence are

becoming challenging as Sonny struggles when stepping out of the bath or

coming up the front steps. Since the accident, Sonny does not enjoy traveling

in cars for long periods. The property is in close proximity to public

transport and a local shopping strip.
























Develop a sample plan period for one
day. The plan should include tasks, time period and who is involved in
assisting with these tasks. Use the template provided to help develop your plan.
