    A resident will have a good sense of esteem if you:

    • A.

      Do all of his personal care for him

    • B.

      Don't bring up his past work so he does not miss it

    • C.

      Review on a monthly basis his increasing need for care

    • D.

      All of the above

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. None of the above
    Explanation
    A resident will not necessarily have a good sense of esteem if you do all of his personal care for him. While it is important to provide assistance with personal care, it is also crucial to promote independence and allow the resident to maintain a sense of dignity. Similarly, not bringing up his past work may not necessarily contribute to a good sense of esteem as the resident may still miss it and appreciate opportunities to reminisce. Reviewing his increasing need for care on a monthly basis is important for proper care planning but does not directly relate to his sense of esteem. Therefore, none of the above options can guarantee a good sense of esteem for the resident.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Report changes immediately to your supervisor
    Explanation
    If you suspect your resident is depressed, it is important to report any changes immediately to your supervisor. This is because your supervisor can take appropriate action and provide necessary support for the resident. Herbal remedies may not be effective or suitable for everyone, and it is not your role to suggest them. Telling the resident to just act happy is not helpful and may invalidate their feelings. Therefore, reporting to your supervisor is the most appropriate course of action in this situation.

This can create a conducive atmosphere for the resident to engage in spiritual or religious discussions, seek guidance, or find solace. A quiet area ensures minimal distractions and allows the resident to focus on their interactions with the spiritual advisor, promoting a meaningful and beneficial visit.
