Assignment Task


Case Study:

Ola Adeyemi is a thirty-year-old man with Down’s syndrome who has lived in Wembley with his parents all his life. Olu and Kemi Adeyemi have supported their son throughout his life and have done many things for him including some activities of daily living, such as, dressing him. Ola has never learnt to prepare and cook food, use public transport or had a job although he attended school until the age of 18. Olu and Kemi Adeyemi are both very frail now and are struggling to support themselves or maintain their previous support for Ola.

You have been asked as a social worker to assess Ola’s needs and begin to formulate desirable and achievable goals to assist Ola to make a move from home into potentially more independent living arrangements in keeping with what Ola would like to achieve in his life.  

Question 1
