Thankfully, there has been on-going research conducted, that relates to the overall care of post-stroke victims, and how they have been conditioned back into their old living habits prior to the stroke. When the care of a patient, who has suffered from a stroke is determined, rehabilitation that may suite the individual’s needs, is often recommended and required to get the best end results possible. Furthermore, most of the aftercare that post stroke patients receive is acute patient care; which provides an extensive amount of care, given within a
Social workers in the geriatric or end-of-life care field are essential because they are crucial for elderly clients in helping them transition properly to the final stages of their lives. The training that each social worker receives and the resources that they provide are important in helping the clients and their families through the ending stages of life and provide diverse ranges of assistance. Role of The Social Worker in Helping Plan End-Of-Life Care The role of each social worker when helping clients plan for end-of-life care is to address the client and their family’s needs in areas of “counseling, religious and cultural resources, reassurance of patient care, and a plan of care” (McCormick, Curtis, Stowell-Weiss, Toms, & Engelberg,
When a senor requires additional care, there are various decisions that need to be made. These include whether the senior wants to remain in their current home, the ability to handle an ongoing medical condition while at home and the financial capacity to invest in professional care services.

Finding a Care Provider After the decision to hire a care service is made, the next important step is to find the right care provider on a short or long-term basis.
Evidence-based practice change: Fall-risk assessment, and management and treatment among community-dwelling older adults in primary care setting Outcomes to measure: According to DiCenso, Guyatt, & Ciliska (2005), evaluation is an important step to determine the impact of the evidence-based practice change. The evaluation process after the implementation of the evidence-based practice change helps to assess whether the change has happened and had the intended impact. Upon the completion of the evaluation process, the practice change can remain unchanged, modified, or discarded (Gawlinski, 2007). DiCenso et al.
If the service user is a referral from Social Services then we usually receive a detailed assessment of the individual’s needs from the assessment a Social Worker has carried out. However, I do not rely on this when carrying out my own assessments as it has proven in the past that Social Services’ information is not always up to date. NHS referrals come with very little information. We receive the initials of the patient, their address, NHS number, Broad care number, next of kin details and the package visit times. We never receive detailed information of their medical history and it is often uncomfortable having to ask for this information from the patient or their next of kin as they feel we should already have this on our records.

Theoretical Framework of Dementia Transitional Care Patients and their caregivers are often the only common factor moving across healthcare settings and it is important to create a transition model intended to improve care transitions and involve both patients and caregivers (Coleman, Smith, Frank, et al., 2004). Research on theoretical frameworks specifically on transitional care for persons with dementia is limited. In a systematic review, Enderlin et al. (2013) summarized six different transitional care models for older adults. Out of these six, four of the models of transitional care were geared for older adults transitioning from hospital to home; the fifth was specific from clinic to home and last model was from nursing home to hospital.
Healthcare for the homeless is generally facilitated in shelters, store-front clinics, mobile medical vehicles, hospital EDs, and churches, where appointments are often mistakenly required. This limits the amount of homeless patients that can even be seen for a regular checkup.

Kitwood (1997,p.8) defines personhood as: ‘..a standing or status bestowed upon one human being by others in the context of particular social relationships and institutional arrangements. It implies recognition, respect and trust’. In an article looking at older people and dementia, Mitchell & Agnelli (2015) suggest that Kitwood’s theories of positive person work and malignant social psychology facilitate healthcare workers in implementing person-centred practices for the older person. They question whether the psychological needs of older people with cognitive deficits are sufficiently met in the clinical area and state that there must be an increased focus on Kitwood’s theories in order to improve care for these
Psychology takes skill, patience and understanding. Patient have experienced many different obstacles within their life so knowing how to perceive, accept, and apply a specific way of learning to each patient will help to build a patient/staff relationship. “Caring science seeks to unify and connect as an evolving philosophical-ethical-epistemic field of study that is grounded in the discipline of nursing and informed by related fields” (DiNapolo, 2010). Sociology is the study of functioning within human society. This can range from male to female, younger or older, along with different types to ethnicities and economic status’.
Dementia is on the rise: Caregiver’s are the “silent victims.” This workshop will provide an overview on mental health implications of caregiver burden and role transition.
