Jennifer is now at home

Initially Jennifer appears to be coping well at home. However, she tells her daughter that she is missing the “safe” environment of the hospital.

Slide 1

‘What is it that you miss about the hospital?’ asks Jennifer’s daughter Wilma.

‘I felt safe there – if I fell, someone would help me’, replies Jennifer.

Slide 2

‘But you have your personal alarm now, Mum; if you fell someone would be here quickly’, continues Wilma.

‘Yes, but what if I was in the bath?’ asks Jennifer.

Slide 3

‘But you have all your equipment in the bathroom to help you, and you have been managing fine since you came home!’ says Wilma.

‘Yes, you are right. I am just worrying about nothing.’ replies Jennifer.
