Read all of the following vignettes. This assignment will use each vignette.

Vignette 1:

Mrs. Davis is 59 and currently living with her husband who is 6 years her junior in Oklahoma. The couple has twin daughters who reside out of state. Mrs. Davis just had her annual physical and was pleased to find out that her hypertension is now controlled due to diet and exercise, but is dissatisfied with the brief discussion about her insomnia. She assumed that she would need less sleep as she gets older, but learned from her physician that this is not the case.

Vignette 2:

Ms. Madrid and her partner are both 63 years old. The couple began dating three months ago. Professionally, they are both elementary school teachers. In her free time, Ms. Madrid is an equestrian competitor at the international level. She enjoys her leisure and met her partner at a gala hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association. They are highly involved in volunteering with this non-profit organization as they both have lost parents due to complications of dementia. Although they are both healthy and active in their early 60s, this couple seeks coaching to maintain their good health.

Vignette 3:

Ms. Mantel is 63. Her partner of 28 years unexpectedly died three months ago. It is noted that Ms. Mantel did not complete the 4th grade, and the household was primary managed by her partner. She is diabetic and insulin dependent. Her grief therapist is worried that her client has put on an additional 15 lbs. to her obese frame. Ms. Mantel is now complaining of increased shortness of breath.
