Instructions: In this assessment task, you will complete a case study analysis of an older person with complex care needs due to the ageing process, life circumstances and chronic conditions that intersect to impact on their level of functioning and quality of life. You will consider the older person’s bio-psycho-socio-environmental context, research professional and scholarly evidence, and outline a plan of care using a person-centred approach.

Detailed Instructions:


Every individual is unique and to support healthy ageing, it is important to focus on the person and what they can do, not their condition or disability. The individual should be supported to achieve their aspirations and support should be tailored to their needs and unique circumstances.

Using a person-centred approach helps to deliver personalised and tailored care to the individual. This involves:

  • Supporting the person to be involved in making decisions about their life
  • Considering the individual’s life experience, age, gender, culture, heritage, language, beliefs, and identity
  • Utilising flexible services and support to suit the person’s wishes and priorities
  • Using a strengths-based approach, where the individual is acknowledged as the expert in their life; focussing first on their abilities and then any support they would need
  • Including the individual’s support networks as partners
