Mrs Campbell was 76 years old and suffering from Alzheimer’ｓ disease.
She lived with her 78-year-old husband in their own bungalow.At the time of the referral they were experiencing a wide variety of functional, social and financial problems.
Mr Campbell was very concerned about his wife’s deterioration. He had to deal with all the daily problems alone, including personal and domestic activities, and dealing with his own feelings of bereavement, guilt and frustration.He was socially isolated as he was unable to leave his wife for more than 30 minutes and could manage only short trips to the local shops. He had no one with whom to discuss his situation and did not know what help,if any,was available. Mrs Campbell had recently developed nocturnal incontinence and, in addition, the skin on her thighs had become inflamed.
The general practitioner referred Mrs Campbell to the local community mental health team for the elderly.She was allocated a care manager who collated all the assessments and recommendations. The majority of the work fell to the occupational therapist.An initial assessment was carried out in the couple’s own home. Mr Campbell identified the problems and the occupational therapist helped him to place them in priority order.
A day assessment was arranged at the local specialised unit for older confused people. During the day Mrs Campbell was examined by a doctor and she spent time in a variety of sessions in the unit’s day care facility to observe her interactional and conversational skills (this was undertaken by the occupational therapist). With the assistance of Mr Campbell, the therapist administered the Clifton Assessment Procedure for the Elderly in order to establish both a behavioural and cognitive baseline.
