CASE STUDY
MR AHMED HUSSAIN
On the 1st of June 2020, Ahmed Hussain’s daughter made a call to the local council services as she
was concerned about the welfare of her father. What the daughter told the advisor: She tells them
that her father has just turned 70 years and up until last year lived with her mother and their two
dogs.
Her mother died last year after three years battling cancer; since then, her father has become more
recluse and in the last six months his forgetfulness appears worse. She tells the advisor that her
father has lost a considerable amount of weight and the house is extremely untidy. She is only able
to visit her father once a week and every time she does, she has concerns. The latest worry was that
he had left the oven on, and the house was extremely warm; when she asked him about it, he said it
was her mother who did that.
