Case Study and Literature Review
Being a monitor for OK-AIM is more than just going into someone’s home and seeing how they live. As a monitor, you are going in to make sure their quality of life is great and that regulations are being met. You are also there to get to know the person and see how differently people adapt and live. One of the responsibilities is making sure the appointment time is good for you because it takes a lot of people and a lot of different schedules put together to make up this one visit. Secondly, you have to communicate with the program itself. If there is no communication between the monitor and the coordinator, it is difficult to maintain a trust relationship for future visits. Another way of communicating with the staff is letting them know if you are comfortable with working alone or if you need a trainer. If you feel like you need someone there to help guide you more than once, they need to know so that they can get the information they need from that home visit.
As a monitor you are responsible to TARC for making sure that the staff is doing their job, that codes are being kept, and that the individual is doing the best to their ability. You have to make sure that the staff is not blowing the individual off or that they know the information of the individual such as; hobbies, medications, schedules, and likes and dislikes. You are also responsible for giving the correct information. If incorrect information is presented then the problems that need fixed will not be addressed. Going into these homes and making sure that the individual has a great quality of life and observing the home, staff, and lifestyle, you are being their voice. Some individuals are verbal and can tell you the issues, but some are not. Some of these people who are non-verbal need someone to e their voice to fix what needs to fixed for them so that they can have a great life and not have to struggle.
First Visit with OK-AIM
On March 6, 2014, I had the opportunity to have my first monitoring visit with OK-AIM. My partner and I drove about an hour and thirty minutes to our monitoring site. We got lost and met our trainer at a nearby What-A-Burger. As we pulled up to our mentor’s house, I became very nervous, I had no clue what to ask all of the sudden and I was not sure what to say at all. All three of us walked up to the door and our trainer rang the doorbell and one of the staff answered the door. As we walked into the door we were greeted by a little white dog named Snowball. Our mentor came from the hallway and greeted us as well. He told us his name was John and we all sat down and began the conversation. John sat in his chair and held Snowball while watching a show on the old television set. My partner and I sat there silently as our trainer began to ask him questions. She would ask him about Snowball and what he liked to do for fun. He said that he loved...
