By establishing a worker/client relationship, this will provide Laura with a secure base to operate from in the future. She will be able to confidently explore her historical, current, and future relationship with her mother knowing that she can receive comfort and reassurance from me, her social worker. Once she recognizes this secure base, I will assist her in discovering how she currently handles her relationship with her mother. During this relational discovery process with her mother, I will also allow her to explore her relationship with me, showing Laura how her previous ways of dealing with others could be positively changed through the change of her various internal behavioral models. Through this social worker and client relationship exploration, Laura will discover how her current perceptions of her mother are connected to expectations from their relationship when she was a child, providing her the opportunity to view the current relationship differently.

The report, emphasises that carers knowledge is a vital source of information and that nurses need to listen to what they have to say in order to provide optimum care.
When AA reported at the hospital in January in a bad state, Shockingly, his was released with plans to admit him the next day because there were no beds.

At the end of my own life, I will hopefully find comfort in being near the time when I will meet my Heavenly Father. I will also hopefully be able to reflect back on my life and know that I lived my life to glorify God and others could see Him in my actions and words. The end of life can be difficult for some people because they are not ready to leave their families yet or feel like they have more to do on Earth. For these people, it is important as nurses to help them accept their situations and to promote Shalom in their lives as well as their families lives Action Throughout this semester I have learned so much about the older adult. This unit on the end of life has been the most meaningful for me, and I plan to implement much of what I have learned in my future career.

Profile Essay While working several shifts in an Alzheimer's unit in a local care facility, I had the opportunity to meet a registered nurse named Sarah. Sarah had plenty of insight on what it is like being a nurse in a facility.

The NHS and their facilities and health professionals ensure that Ruth receives the physical care that is needed, which is crucial for her health and wellbeing. From the services of the NHS, I see that they are effective in providing Ruth’s needs and ensures that Ruth visits her GP regularly. Furthermore, the GP ensures that Ruth’s needs are met by ensuring there are no physical barriers that prevent Ruth from receiving care and make sure that she has her regular health checks so that her physical development and wellbeing is monitored and under control.

If she needed to go to the hospital for more specialised care, by getting a referral from her GP, her consultation at the hospital is free. Some disadvantages include delays Amber would have to wait. She would have waiting times for both the appointment to see her GP and further waiting time to see the specialist.

Another disadvantage is that Amber may have repeated examinations (Siu, 2015).
