CASE STUDY Mr John Smith is an 82-year-old gentleman who lives with his wife Mary (72 years old) in a semi-detached house. The house has one bathroom situated upstairs and no toilet downstairs. Mr Smith is a retired dockyard worker who smokes 20 cigarettes per day and used to enjoy an active social life centred on the local social club. An extended family comprising a son and his wife also lives nearby. Mr Smith’s mobility has gradually declined over the last 5 years and he is presently housebound because of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The nature of the work is vocational and like professional roles, such as law and medicine, is valued within society. Professionals exercise their duty in the best interests of their clients and thereby their approach is intentionally altruistic.
