A community Occupational Therapist is due to meet for the first time with a 67 year old Slovak lady Mrs Kristina Kostrova who has reduced mobility, fatigue and difficulty accessing the bathroom which is located on the first floor on a two bedroomed house. More recently, concern has been raised by her family that she has become increasingly forgetful and had inadvertently left her gas cooker on whilst cooking.
Mrs Kostrova’s son and his wife have temporarily moved in with his mother along with their six year old twin daughters following being made homeless and are currently waiting for suitable housing for their own family
The change of home circumstances has resulted in increased stress being experienced by the family and the referral states that this is causing the son to shout more at the children which is affecting the children’s school work and confidence. Also the son has shouted at his mother and physically threatened her. The cleanliness within the kitchen is becoming an issue according to both Mrs Kostrova’s son and daughter in-law.
