In anticipation of the home health nurse visit scheduled for later in the morning, Mrs. Anderson reflected on her current living situation: The grandchildren were late for school again! What would their mother say? Ever since Mrs. Anderson had moved in with her daughter-in-law, it seemed that she just couldn’t do things the way her daughter wanted her too. She wondered if she would ever get it right. She had volunteered to make breakfast for the children and see them off to school in the mornings, since both her son and daughter-in-law left for work before the children left for school. She felt she had to help out somehow to repay her family. They had been helping her since before she fell and then had to have surgery. Her hip was healing nicely after the surgery and the doctor said she might be able to stop using the walker soon, but it seemed to be taking too long to her. The medicines were so difficult to take. The calcium pills were so big! Sometimes she just wanted to be back in her little apartment and be taking care of herself by herself. She just didn’t understand why everyone thought she would forget to eat or take care of herself. She was doing just fine!! She did very well when she was helping her late husband Fred. She helped with the bathing and turning and getting him out of bed when he couldn’t walk anymore. The home health nurses always told her what a good job she was doing with her husband. It just didn’t seem like 9 months since he had passed away.
What factors should be considered when the nurse assesses the self-care agency of Mrs. Anderson in order to determine Mrs. Anderson’s nursing care needs?
What self-care deficits can be identified for Mrs. Anderson?
Using Orem’s Theory of Self-Care Deficits, develop a plan of care for Mrs. Anderson. Develop 1 nursing diagnosis with nursing interventions.
What additional nursing theory (from the ones we had discussed) would you incorporate into Mrs. Anderson’s care to provide additional support? Explain how you would apply the theory to this case and how the theory would change the plan of care.
Power Point should include at least 3 outside references and the textbook. It should include title and reference slides and be 14-20 slides.
