Case Study #1

MLP suffers from Prader Willi and lived at home with his parents and siblings.  Having been a victim of a safeguarding incident awaiting a place at a new service, Adolphus Care were asked as an emergency to replace the Outreach interim provider.  Within days we were supporting J out in the community on a daily basis 2:1 in a vehicle that we supplied for the purpose.  This support not only enabled the family to continue with their lives travelling internationally and homeworking it gave J the opportunity to continue with his routine and attend the introduction to new provider including 100 miles of daily travel.  This was particularly useful as it allowed us to communicate his eccentricities to his new provider.

Indeed, his mother stated about the interim period we supported him: “I cannot be more positive about the support you have given us over the last few months. When we returned from France, we thought J would be with us for a matter of days, not months – and the support you have given to us has been second to none.”

Case Study #2

S, after spending some considerable time in a mental health facility following a breakdown of communication with her travelling family, S joined us in June 2017. By no means has her journey been without hurdles. There has been hospitalisation as a result of over dosing, self-abuse with laxatives and sharp implements such as shards of light bulbs. The progress with S has erratic but has not involved the expected complete relapse, instead a new found understanding of money, and an increase in her self-esteem. Just remaining stable in the same placement for a year has been a significant landmark for S. Every week there is a new issue or challenge to deal with, but we do not give up and her story continues.

Case Study #3

I presented and continues to present quite unique challenges. Having exasperated previous providers, we were required to come up with a plan to address daily calls to emergency services, manipulative and sexually risky behaviour and frequent damage to his furniture and environment. We believed that an undiagnosed personality disorder may also exist and were required to employ a variety of strategies to impact his erratic and dangerous behaviour.
Engaging with the emergency services, we were able to avail ourselves of the Single Point of Contact service alongside the local mental health services to address the calling of ambulances and police. It is not a complete turnaround by any means but almost two years in I have reduced his anti-social behaviour, cares about losing his placement and he is more importantly, settled.
