–Case Scenario (Personal)

Mr. and Mrs. English was married for nearly 50 years and had 9 children. In spite of the fact that Mr. English was the bread winner in the family, he spent practically most of his time outside the home. During his absenteeism, Mrs. English struggled and managed to raised their children single-handedly. There was a great lack of responsibility for nurturing and making necessary provision for the family on the part Mr. English. As the years went by, there had been a marked sign of resentment from the children and Mr. English never attempted to make amends. Now that everyone of the children are all grown with their own family, they feel no reason for obligation toward their father’s well-being. Moreover, Mrs. English has deceased and nearly 15years later, Mr. English, now 90years is living alone, has very limited contact with his family and no friends. Although still mobile, he is very frail and is experiencing several issues with his health. His living condition are very bad, the home is dirty and cluttered, no running water and electricity installed. Eats scraps and canned foods. Maintains a strong body odor due to poor hygiene. However, as feeble and weak and unkempt as he is, he manages to still take public transportation 3 or 4 times weekly to sit in an area of public interaction as well as to seek after a small pension that’s deposited in his bank account each month. He possesses no benefits to contribute toward his care. Most with the exception of one of the children have migrated abroad. Seven out of the nine children do not care to participate in any efforts towards contributing in his care. At times, Mr. English complains that he has many children and grandchildren and sees no one. In his current condition, it is suggested that he should be institutionalized for a better quality of care or perhaps have a caretaker in his home. He refuses both options and as a results, causes strife for the one remaining adult child.
