Question and answer
what is the social model of dementia
I would say that dementia is seen as a disease by many people, with the stereo typical person being an elderly person, that's frail, living in a residential care home, [ they have few or no relatives and they have got little idea of what is happening to them or whats happening around them. This, by the way, is no way near the truth, although that's not saying that there ain't cases similar to
the above. The truth is quite startling in comparison. Dementia is an umbrella term for memory loss, not any one particular disease. This can include anything from a bang to the head to a disease like alzheimer's. There are over 400 different forms of dementia. Dementia can affect the young as well as the old. Dementia can affect people of any social background, rich, poor, large build, small build, Intelligent, someone of little intelligence, it could be anybody. ]
