D was referred to making room by her AGE UK community navigator.
Her basic living needs were not being met.
The property was cluttered and disordered throughout, with a large number of magazines and foodstuffs in rooms, scoring a rating of 5 on the clutter image rating.
Our assessment confirmed that D was consenting and committed to the change that needed to take place in order for her physical and mental wellbeing.
We agreed to 2 members of staff to work with D for four hours over 2 sessions – 2 One Hackney Making Room intervention programmes (16 hours).
Our techniques were adapted to meet D’s needs and included taking photographs of the room as we worked and using these to allow D to instruct staff, and making lists with D which was very effective.
Outcome – client’s goals achieved
This in turn means D has regained some confidence in her mobility
Also made access for district nurse and other frontline staff easier.
