User: describe how the environment might affect an iondividual with dementia

Weegy: A person with a learning disability has a lifelong condition that impacts on their learning, communication and understanding. [ [ They may require support with some tasks including planning, learning new skills and socialising. The causes of different learning disabilities vary and are not always known. Some learning disabilities occur before birth and are due to genetic disorders, such as Down's syndrome and fragile X syndrome. Others occur after birth but before adulthood; they may be due to infection (eg bacterial meningitis), brain injury, lack of oxygen at birth or prematurity. The effects of a learning disability on the individual range from mild to severe to profound (very severe). The term 'dementia' describes a set of symptoms that typically include loss of memory, behavioural or mood changes, and problems with communication, reasoning and daily activities. These symptoms occur when the brain is damaged by certain diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Dementia is a progressive condition which means that the symptoms will get worse. ] ]
