Select one of the following vignettes provided by Mehrotra and Wagner (2006). The vignettes I have chosen is Vignette 1: David Peterson. David Peterson is 82 years old, lives in a one room apartment, in a large metropolitan area. He requires assistance to move from his bed to a wheel chair or from his chair to the toilet. He receives both personal care and home making services for a few hours every day. His 58 years old daughter lives about a mile away from him and comes regularly to provide informal care. However, she is not able to lift her father or to provide hands on care. Describe the informal and formal support system for this individual. Identify additional types of service the individual could benefit from. Do you believe that the older adult in the vignettes is receiving the most optimal care? Why? or Why not? Explain how you came to this conclusion. 250-300 words, one scholarly source, APA format.
