Scenario Today you have been given a client who has been receiving care and support from your organisation for 5 years, from the same carer, but the carer has just finished working with your organisation.  You have read over your new client’s care plan. 

Mr Zappala, has been living independently for many years, informed the previous carer last week that his sister, who he sees every week, had suddenly passed away.  Today he seems distant, and not able to communicate clearly, often speaking in his first language, Italian, which he apparently does not do during his visits.  There is a very bad smell in his home and you notice that there are some heavy boxes in the hallway that make it difficult to get to the bathroom easily.

He seems to not be so clear in his responses and communication, and he does not get up and make a cup of tea for you both as he usually likes to do.  You are concerned about his health and safety.  You make a cup of tea for you both and sit and talk with him.  While you are in the kitchen, you notice that the element on the stove is on but nothing on it.  You also have a mild slip in the kitchen from a puddle of water.
