Case Study  Mr P, 80 year old gentleman who lives alone.  Long-term conditions - heart failure and osteoarthritis.

 Referred from Community Heart Failure Nurse as he showed an interest in losing weight, but was finding it difficult due to his long term conditions. He did, however, understand that losing weight would greatly improve his symptoms.

Case Study  On the initial visit, the WBC spent time getting to

know Mr P, and discussing his needs, goals, and his past attempts at losing weight

 Mr P told the WBC that he had had dealings with

dieticians in the past, but that he did not find them particularly helpful. He said he would “dearly love to lose weight” but wasn’t sure how to go about it, short of “starving” himself. The WBC advised Mr P on the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet, and taking part in regular physical activity, as evidenced in NICE Clinical Guidance (43) on Obesity, 2006.

Case Study  Interventions – food diary, seated exercise plan  Mr P identified two short term wellbeing goals:  To complete exercise plan three times per week, for four weeks

 To learn how to use the internet, particularly Skype, in order to keep in touch with family across the country

Case Study Outcomes

 Increased physical activity – does home exercise

programme every other day, swims twice a week, attends Tai Chi

 Increased fruit and vegetable consumption and lost 7 pounds

 Attended IT classes and bought a tablet to communicate with family

Case Study Outcomes

 Reports improved mobility, general wellbeing and reduced breathlessness

 Feels part of the community  Wider impacts on partner agencies
