Topic and questions related to be answered below:
Mary is an 87-year-old white widowed female with a history of respiratory issues. Mary currently lives alone in a two bedroom condominium. Mary gets short of breath when she completes any of her activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and meal preparation. Mary has noticed these activities are getting harder to complete alone and take her longer to complete. Marys daughter Carol lives five miles away. Carol helps with grocery shopping and light cleaning. Mary states she wants to stay at home for as long as she can.
Using the vignette above, share what you think you already know about the Mary. What more do you need to find out about Mary or her situation? What open-ended questions do you need to ask of Mary and Carol in an initial assessment?
