Question and answer
Q: Describe how a conflict of interest can be addressed between the carer and an individual with dementia whilst balancing rights, choices and risk
A: Older people have the right to be in charge of their own lives. [ But sometimes frailty, disability, isolation, financial circumstances or social attitudes lead to older people having limited choices to make their own decisions. ? Early linking with the advocate which is particularly important for clients who live alone and do not have well developed local support networks ? Advocate
established rapport and trust while the client was still functioning intellectually at a fairly sophisticated level ? Advocate assisted clients to introduce formal support services for the first time ? Client took other steps to better manage their dementia e.g. joining the Living with Memory Loss Group; requesting the advocate support them with critical medical appointments and assessments ? Advocate assisted them to solve other problematic situations e.g. negotiating with body corporate; assisting to resolve the ?clean up? issue that was impeding the possibility of formal support services being introduced ? When client started to deteriorate the advocate was a bridge to supportive family members which avoided the need for a more formal substitute decision-making process i.e. emergency guardianship hearing ? The transition to residential care was managed in a manner that caused the client the least stress. ]
