(Up to 750 words) What to do

Mr. JC is an 85 year old Muslim man and has been attending Day Care to reduce his isolation in order to maintain a stable mental health condition. A severe stroke few years back left him with slow mobility and partial speech impairment.

He has a habit of using specific chairs in the lounge and in the dining hall. His food intake is also specific in terms of choosing a specific piece from a whole fish, which the day centre provider purchases from a local fish market. Any change of these choices causes him to become agitated and angry.

Once he is angry he becomes very aggressive and starts swearing at staff members using extremely degrading words in his native tongue. His aggressive attitude over time towards the staff has significantly increased. He believes that apart from the manager everyone has bad manners and also that everyone including the other service users has issues against him.

The care staff team became very unhappy due to his anger and aggressive behaviour. The Social Worker was contacted to review his case. He became angry while the meeting with the social worker was in progress. The social worker understood the situation and medical support was requested.

It is the responsibility of the manager to defuse the dissatisfaction of the members of staff and also to ensure that the best possible service is provided to Mr. JC. It is expected that you will produce a  fact sheet for AC 4.1; 4.2; 4.3 which will   include the different concepts of challenging behaviour, and include the impact of challenging behaviour and also analyse strategies.

4.1  In the  first  section  produce  a  fact  sheet  that  will explain  different  concepts  of challenging behaviour. [P4.1]

4.2 The second section you must describe the potential impact of challenging behaviour on health and social care organisations. [P4.2]

4.3 Finally, in the third section of the  fact  sheet, you must analyse  strategies  for working with challenging behaviours associated with specific needs. [P3.3, D3]

Include in your fact sheet a reflective analysis to show how the knowledge gained in Unit 1: Communicating in Health and Social Care Organisations is linked to Unit 16 Understanding Specific Needs in Health and Social Care.
