Unit 3: Individual Needs in Health and Social Care
In this assignment i am going to outline the everyday needs of three individuals in different life stages which include their spies needs and making reference to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
Life stages: 11-18
Dolly is a female girl at the age of 15 and lives in a care home for young offenders.
Dolly used to live with her dad but he died when she was 10 years of age. Dolly had to live with her mother but didn’t get on with her or her step dad. Dolly didn’t have any siblings only her step sister which never took too.
At the age of 13 dolly started to mix with the wrong crowd and ended up going off the rails which resulted in taking drugs and alcohol. It was a constant batter to keep her away from the wrong crowd and her parents had no option but to have her put into care. Social services had Dolly foster to a foster family but still had issues with her behaviour and ended up being place in a care home.
Dolly’s spies needs are met by:
Spiritual- dolly has been taking part in meditation and with significant benefits it’s resulted in her having deep relaxation, relief from stress, anxiety and depression.
Physical-dolly is provided with shelter, food and warmth at the care home.
Intellectual-the care home for offenders will possible have re-offending courses to stimulate the mind and give dolly a understanding of what she has done and how to overcome her problems .
Emotional- dolly health is looked after and given plenty of support.
Socially- socialising with her friends, meeting new people that may have similar interests
