Small-Group Discussion: Case Study – Discussion Group 4
Mrs. W. is a 76-year-old widow living independently in her own home. Her family has noticed that Mrs. W. is having increasing difficulty with memory and is easily confused. A recent medical visit revealed that she has lost 40 lbs. over the past year due to her inability to plan and prepare meals. She also is not consistently taking her blood pressure medication as evidenced by pill count. Mrs. W. reacted with anger when these issues were brought up with her primary care provider. She insists that there is nothing wrong and refuses to accept help in the home or to move. The family asks the nurse what they can do to keep Mrs. W. safe.
