About the client :

Mr LA is a softly spoken, friendly gentleman who is able to hold a good conversation. He spends most of his time at home, enjoying the garden when the weather is warm. During the day Mr LA reads, listens to music, watches television, has phone calls with friends and family and frequent visits from his two Daughters. Mr LA does get very anxious when he has a new carer and any new carer should be aware and sensitive to this. The current carer has said he is anxious with her too so it's nothing personal, it's just important to do things efficiently and gently to respect his worries.
