How might a social worker assist Mr Tanner in his rehabilitation?
I'd be happy to explain...
Whilst Mr Tanner is under-going rehabilitation, transport has been arranged to help them get around, as Mrs Tanner no longer holds a current driving license and Mr Tanner in unable to drive. I have also arranged support for Mrs Tanner through HACC (Home and Community Care), as she is having trouble coping with some of the more arduous jobs around the house and yard that were previously attended to by Mr Tanner.
Mrs Tanner recently wanted to discuss the changes to their intimate relationship that might be necessary since he had his stroke. She has heard that sexual contact can increase the risk of stroke and is concerned about how this may affect her husband.
