Case 3: Jennifer

photo portrait of Jennifer, an older womanJennifer Parks

Jennifer is an 80-year old retired factory worker who lives alone in a ground floor flat.

Once indoors her rooms are on one level. Her daughter, Wilma, lives several miles away and has two school-age children. She works full time and as a result has limited time to assist her mother once discharged from hospital.

Jennifer was independent before being admitted to hospital on this occasion, however her daughter does suggest she can be a worrier in “new situations”. Jennifer’s main hobbies are bingo, walking her dog, and she is an active member of the local church.
