Dear Ms Johns,
Re:Mrs Joy Rafferty, aged 05
I am referring Mrs Rafferty, into your facility who needs further care and management owing to increased isolation and general health.
Mrs Rafferty, who has been visiting our community health centre since ten years after her retirement. Her isolation has been increased and restricted to attend only family occasions. All her shopping were done by family members and visits outside occasionally. Earlier, she was active with the church group and social activity. But this is stopped she cannot drive longer distances. Several family meetings were conducted to encourage her to involve in social activities.
Mrs Rafferty, a widowed woman, who recides alone and supported the family members after the death of husband. She has had bening hypertension since ten years and now progressd to essential hypertension, for which she is commenced on conversyl 4mg, daily. Weight gain has been reported over the past year and mild depression has been observed. Due to undifferentiated asteoarthritis, experienced aches and pain, for which analgesics where administered.
Based on the above circumstances, it would be appreciated if you could encourage Mrs Rafferty, for adopting exercise program and to involve in social activities like aqua aerobics, local woman’s chair, meals on wheels, and visiting parish groups is required. Continuing family meetings and monitoring would be beneficial to improve her condition.
If you have any queries pertaining to Mrs Rafferty, please do not hesitate to contact me.
