Role Description: This 64-year-old has suffered a brain haemorrhage but physically and mentally is active and well. The patient is friendly, polite and has a good sense of humour, but suffers from extreme fatigue.

On Saturday, additional tasks will include encouraging light exercise (short walks, for example). No personal care is required.
The aim is to establish a good daily routine and attempt to reduce the patient’s fatigue.
