Part 3: Read about the case family that is described at the end of this document. Consider what your home town/city has to offer this family. Be reflectiveabout this family’s needs and wants.

CASE STUDY:

Mrs. Tau is a 55 year old Grandmother. She has just been promoted to the head of housekeeping at a local hotel chain in your home town/city. She will be working Monday through Friday, 6 am to 2 pm. She is caring for her three grandchildren while her daughter serves a 5 year prison charge. She is very active in her current neighborhood and elementary school organizations, and, although she is a widow, she has a large extended family in the community that she is moving from. Her community has been incredibly helpful in terms of helping Mrs. Tau to provide before school care for her grandchildren and to be emotionally supportive as well. Mrs. Tau and her grandchildren have become very connected to and involved in their current community.

Mrs. Tau cares for three dependents. The oldest granddaughter is 13 years and attends middle school. She enjoys reading, television, and spending time with her friends and cousins in the neighborhood. The middle granddaughter is 9 years old and attends elementary school. She enjoys playing with neighboring children, YMCA sports programs, and riding her bike. The youngest grandson is 7 years old and attends a school for special needs children. He has behavioral and developmental disorders and has recently been diagnosed with Autism. Mrs. Tau’s grandson requires medication and therapy treatments. He enjoys walks in the park, playing with toys, and listening to music.

Currently, the children receive some state assistance and Medicaid, but towards the end of the month Mrs. Tau struggles to provide food for her three dependents for all three meals a day. Mrs. Tau is hopeful that this promotion will allow her to cover all of her monthly expenses. She also hopes that by moving to your home town/city she will be able to continue to give her grandchildren a secure home and opportunities to continue to participate in the activities that they enjoy. She is also concerned about her grandson and wants to be able to continue to access supportive therapies for him. In her new job she will earn $70,000 a year with full health insurance benefits. She currently owns a car but it is 10 years old and is need of some minor repairs. The car is becoming increasingly unreliable and Mrs. Tau is hopeful the new town/city will have transportation to school for the children and is curious about public transportation options for herself. Mrs. Tau and the grandchildren currently live in a modest house. They are curious about what their new home will look like and ideally would like to continue to live in a 3 bedroom home so that the grandson can have his own room which seems to help with his ability to cope, regulate, and be successful with his school work and his therapies.
