    Technique Of Technology Road Mapping Assignment   Throughout the life of an individual, various events takes place that may have a negative or positive effect on an individual. This changes to a great extent influence the response of the individuals surrounding towards this changes. One of such changes is the transition from childhood into adulthood. Through thus stages, various changes occur in an individual, some of this changes could be appealing while the others are greatly unappealing. For instance, the case of reaching the adolescent stage, in this, an adolescent may develop some sense of alienation from the rest considering the various changes associated with it. Such changes might include the development of breast, having pimples, gaining some weight or rather development of hips in ladies. Such changes may make an adolescent feel different from the others thus choosing to keep to herself or himself. Other than this it may also draw him/ her to a group with same peers undergoing same transitions. This is because they find a sense of belonging and feel like they are understood more.

    Just like the adolescents, middle aged adults are faced with various issues regarding their changes. Transition in this stage is coupled with a lot of responsibilities, some of which include marriage, having kids and many more. In such a scenario an individual may be enthusiastic about the roles and get responsible. Alternatively, they may be faced with pressure due to the renewed duties they are facing making them overwhelmed and at times even stressed out. This is quite a challenge to adjust to.

    The final stages of life transitions are aging, that is old age, and death. In this, an individual tends to review his life trying to justify some of his actions. This creates a filling of either fulfilment or despair. Take for instance a case where an old man  has accomplished his life goals, such an individual has some sense of pride for his accomplishments. However, in a scenario where an individual’s life is full of unfinished duties, he or she has regrets of a life poorly lived. Their life would be full of despair and thus not able to face death courageously.

    Other than this basic life stages, their are other various life changes that may impact positively on negatively on an individual. Some of this life changes include lifestyle, relationships, health, illness, disability, economic circumstances, cultural difference and many others. Such changes may affect how individuals perceive themselves and how they behave. An example is outlined in in the case study about the Alzheimer condition. Prior to illness, Terry was able to have fun moments with his family, due some duties with his wife and so on. However, due to the manner in which the illness altered his mental state, he ability was undermined. This was not only limited to his physical ability but also his mental capability to make decisions. An instance is when he makes an emergency call to know his daughter’s well being who ironically was taking care of him.

    Response by others to such changes.

    Throughout all these changes in an individual life, there need to have some form of positive response and support from others. However not everyone considers ones problem as a social problem some rubbish it off considering it a personal issue. In our case study however, Terry was able to pull through his Alzheimer condition majorly due to support from the family, that is his wife and daughter. They not only stood by him but also assisted in doing his abandoned roles. This positive response was quite key in keeping Terry’s condition stable. Through this he felt quite appreciated.

    Impact of changes to others.

    The various changes that occur in an individual may be personal but the effects and impact is felt beyond the individual level. These is due to the gap it creates and in cases such as illness costs may be incurred during treatment phases and many more. A close relation to this is revealed in the case study about Terry. During his illness phase, a lot changes occurred majorly to his family, roles that were previously shared between the two were now solely the wife’s responsibility due to the mental instability that Terry had. This built up pressure on Christine, the wife as she had to do more. Other than this, she and her step daughter were faced with responsibility of taking care of Terry. This altered the physical mobility and social life of Terry’s wife and daughter as they were supposed to be always present to care for him

    Another great impact that this changes posses is the altering of family time and good moments. In our case, there were instances when Terry questioned his relationship with Christina. This is quite depressing but understanding is the key in overcoming the overwhelming sadness.

    How others may provide support.

    Having to go through a sudden change in life is quite challenging as you have to deviate from the norm. This thus needs help and support of those in your surrounding, for example friends, family and even acquaintances. All this support is essential in helping one adapt to the new changes in their life. Terry for example couldn’t carry out a number of roles after he fell sick. Such activities were carried out by his wife and daughter. It is through this care, concern and support that he survived the changes.

    Suitability of external sources of support.

    Regardless of the support from family both the afflicted individual together with those around him would need an external source of support in order to adjust to changes. This external sources would include services of a specialist, support therapies e.g. counselling, and others. These not only brings about a change of environment and relief but also offers cancelling on the way of care. Terry and his family for example took on a vacation to the southern port with the aid of Alzheimer’s society. This helped them in breaking away from the norm giving them a change of scenery and a chance to be taken care of by the professionals. There were also the necessary equipment in taking care of those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This greatly gave Terry’s family a break
