Agnes has three sons and a daughter. Her sons live in Canterbury where one of them works on the family farm. Agnes and Bill moved up to live near their daughter Liz six years ago when they retired from the farm due to Bills ill health. Liz is married with three grown up children and four grandchildren. She works fulltime at a local pharmacy. Liz visits Agnes every day and brings her dinner each night. Since Bill’s death Agnes has become a lot less active. She never had a drivers licence as Bill would drive them both around. Liz tries to take Agnes out in the car when she can but they both find this difficult now. Three months ago Liz took Agnes for dinner at a local restaurant to celebrate Liz’s 60th birthday. Agnes needed the help of one of Liz’s sons to get her in and out of the car.
After Bill’s death Agnes feels she gave up for a while. She got weaker and weaker and lost her appetite. She lost a considerable amount of weight. One night she got up to go to the toilet and fell in the bathroom. She was taken by ambulance to the local hospital where she spent three weeks recovering from a broken hip. On her discharge from the hospital Liz wanted Agnes to come and live with her; however Agnes refused to go anywhere but back to her own home. Liz has noticed that since that time Agnes has become more and more frail. She has had four falls in the last six months. The last fall was while she was walking to the toilet, she fell and was not able to get up until Liz arrived that evening. Liz had to call her grandson to help get Agnes back into her chair. When she fell Agnes cut her shin badly.
The district nurses had to come to dress the wound. Now she still has the dressing changed weekly. Liz also has noticed that her mum is constipated and this causes her pain and discomfort. She cooks her mum a meal each day and brings it round. However Agnes’ appetite is so poor nowadays that she never finishes the meals. Liz thinks that the time is coming where her mum will need to come to live with her. Agnes has always been extremely house proud but now Liz finds that she is having to do all the housework which is becoming more and more difficult. Liz does not know how she will cope as she has a bad back. She is scared she will hurt herself and then her mother would be in a worse situation.
One morning, Agnes’ 6 month old great grandchild visits and sneezes all over Agnes, Within 2 days, she is in bed with a cold which quickly deteriorates into a pneumonia. Liz contacts the GP who starts on ABs but a day later, Liz visits and finds Agnes delirious and the GP advises visit to ED, upon which she is admitted to AMAU and 1 day later assessed by Jay (Liaison worker) Given her past deterioration, CREST is considered and Jay informs Agnes’ GP, the CREST case manager and Agnes chooses Nurse Maude as the provider. Agnes’ daughter collects her that afternoon and the team commences immediately.
