An 82 year old woman with moderate dementia and a hearing implement is brought to the surgeon’s office for a follow-up appointment after hip replacement surgery. The woman’s daughter accompanies her. The goal of the appointment is to make certain the hip is healing nicely and to discuss precautions before the patient returns to her assisted living apartment. Almost immediately, the conversation is directed toward the daughter because it is so much easier to explain to her what should be done. (Answer all of the following questions completely.)
What might the staff do to help the patient understand the following?
Use the walker consistently
Shoes must be leather tennis shoe type or uniform style; consider Velcro closure as opposed to laces that have to be tied
Do not wear pantyhose
You will not be able to walk your dog on a leash
Should the patient be left out of the conversation? Should the daughter be included?
In cases such as these is something other than verbal communication indicated?
What type of provider would you need to contact to assist the patient with normal daily tasks?
The daughter has asked for information on support group she could become involved with to help her understand and support her mother as best as she can. Locate and list two support groups that might be helpful for the patient’s daughter.
Submit a properly APA formatted Word document that answers the above three questions regarding Patient Communication.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument
