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