Re:Ms Monica Osburn, aged 69
Iam writing to refer Ms Monica Osburn, an aged pensioner has been suffering from hypertension and depression. She requires monitoring and assistance from your facility as she will be relocating to your area today.
Ms Osburn has a history of hypertension since 10 years and depression from 2 years, for which antihypertensives and antidepressants has been commenced. In addition, monitoring to medicatio compliance has been provided. However, she has a periodic problem of self-administration of medication.
Ms Osburn used to live alone in Newport and now she is relocating to Woodville in rented accommodation, which is near to her daughter home. However, she has a long history of excessive alcoholism and it get increase in an anxious state.
Upon referral, it would be greatly appreciated if you could arrange a contact with medical practitioner and monitor her compliance to medications as well as diet pattern. Simultaneously, encourage her to participate in family and social groups in order to decrease alcohol consumption and improve social activities.
Pertaining to the above circumstances, if you have further queries please do not hesitate to contact me,
