  I. Introduction Family, as defined by Encarta, is a group of people who are closelyrelated by birth, marriage or adoption, functioning as a single household, andusually consisting of parents and their children. While on the other hand, afamily case analysis is a determination of the nature of a problem occurringin families and implying some possible solutions about the problem, and toanalyze some observable cases of that particular family, who may be in needof medical intervention and attention. And so, as student public healthnurses currently taking up HECA-101A, our assignment is to conduct familycase analyses on families residing in several Barangays in Olongapo City.We were assigned to hold a family case analysis to one of the familiesliving in Old Cabalan, Olongapo City. As early as 8:00 in the morning, a dayso wet because of the rain brought by typhoon Hannah, the group, amidstthe bad weather, has decided to continue the trip down to Old Cabalan. Thetrip will not mean an enjoyable one! Though can be tagged as an “enjoyable journey” through adventures waiting for us – and we guess these mayinclude wet steep streets of slop 45 ◦ , houses to look for, and the selection of the right home for the right family case analysis.And our guess was right, as we arrived at our destination, Sir Seranointroduced as to some Barangay staff, present there at Old CabalanBarangay hall. To look for the house of the right family is our first main task.Old Cabalan is not just a four-cornered room-sized barangay. To find theright family is not an easy task, but how lucky we are that as we walked tothe mountainous terrain of Old Cabalan, we found a humbled homeconsisting of a hospitable family who are willing to cooperate for the taskthat we are going to render.

By definition, thislarge family composed of twelve members, can be classified as patriarchalfor the main existing fact that most of the matters relating to the conclusive judgment of the family such as health decisions, and everyday life decisionsare vested upon more to the authority of the father.Mr. Ricardo and Mrs. Leonicia, at the age of 49 and 45 respectively, arealready grandparents to the child of their fifth sibling – Maria Rica Omagap,17 – whose live-in partner does not live in the same residential address of the family. But this situation could be tagged as “Extended”. It also fits thecriteria of an extended family, and can be classified under this category.Maria Rica and her daughter Jody Omagap still reside in the home of theOmagaps. Adding more spaces and seeking for support. While on the otherhand, the eldest sibling of the Omagap family, Lerylin, was already marriedand that they have separated themselves from the family.Although Mang Ricardo heads a family of many members, this largenumber has not impeded the formation of a peaceful and organized family.No observable conflict among family members, and that there are noimpaired communications nor there any communication – isolated casesevident in some members. These were observed at the date and time of thehome visit. III. Socioeconomic and Cultural factors Monthly Family Income SourceHusband: Php 220 Wife: Php 300  Others: 2 nd Eldest: Php 220, 6 th Eldest: Php 220, 7 th Eldest: Php 100 Total:Below Php 5,000Felt Family Needs:1.Trabaho/ dagdag na kita2.Gamot3.Pagkain4.Bahay Though Mang Ricardo heads a family of twelve members including him,this large number has not impeded the formation of a peaceful andorganized family. It is pretty obvious that because of the low educationattainment of all members, this unfortunate fate has resulted in a problem of not having enough financial support for the family. And that the loss of apermanent job for the legal-age members of the family is the mainconsequence of that previous problem. As indicated in the table under thetopic family structure, characteristics and dynamics, only five members of the family have their own jobs. Unfortunately, Leorilyn, the eldest sibling of the family has already separated and now working as a factory worker forher family. But even these jobs could not be considered as “jobs” for theyare not permanent; for they could not earn enough money to support thephysiological and basic needs of the family. Approximately, the averagemonthly income of the family changes form less than or equal to Php 8,000to less than or equal to Php 10,000. Mrs. Leoncia only earns Php 300/ weekfrom her laundry. Mang Ricardo on the other hand should earn Php 5280/month if, and only if, he is a regular construction worker. The same is truewith his two sons. Unfortunately, this is not what is happening. The truth is,they’re just few of the victims of the “not so good” system in the Philippines.Financial resources problem is getting serious. It has resulted in chainproblems vested upon the loss of a job. “…gusto ko talaga number one angtrabaho”, uttered by Mang Ricardo as we asked him about the top ten needsof the family, a very smart answer to a question which most people woulddefinitely put financial needs on the number one spot. “Kung may trabahoka, magkakaroon ka ng pera at kung ano pa ang gugustuhin mo”, heconcluded.
