Fred is a 75-year old male. Fred and Lucy both lived together in their own home on Plum Lane in The Burroughs. They had been married for over 45 years. They had one daughter, and a good life with a supportive circle of friends.
Several years ago, Lucy was diagnosed with dementia and recently died in a residential care home from Covid-19. Fred had been her primary carer in their home. Fred has been going through a period of sadness, coming to terms with the fact that Lucy will no longer be there.
Today, his 38-year-old daughter, who lives in Manchester, worried that Fred was not answering his phone, visited him. The house was cold and had no heating. She found him sitting on a chair, staring at the television in the lounge. He looked unshaven, unkempt, and eyes sunken. She could smell a strong odour of urine. He appeared to be flushed and reddish. His daughter tried to speak with him, but he was relatively quiet and withdrawn. She looked around and discovered that his blood pressure tablets were in the container on the table and it appeared that he has not been taking them as the container was full. She tried to get him to stand up to wash, but he appeared to have a weakness on one side, hence unable to get up. The daughter became very concerned and rang for an ambulance. The paramedic felt it was urgent to take him to the hospital.
Fred was admitted to the Accident and Emergency Department of the local hospital. Following several investigations, it was deemed necessary to transfer him to a medical ward.
