Question and answer
explain the difference between a reality orientation approach to interactions and a validation approach
pproaches of disoriented elderly people can be distinguished in two main perceptions, Reality Orientation and Validation. Reality Orientation appeals to still existing functions and helps people to get oriented toward the reality. [ Validation goes with people into their inner world, where feelings dominate and facts are no longer important. In this article both approaches are explicated.
Further, it is stated that measuring the effects of Reality Orientation or Validation have the same pitfalls, such as lack of adequate scales, unclear definitions of the behaviour and symptoms of patients involved, and the risk of measuring a Hawthorne effect. The author states that Validation meets the demands of disoriented people better than Reality Orientation. She argues to think in-depth about the aims of psychogeriatric care, in order to define what effects should be pursued and measured. Nursing diagnoses should be used instead of medical diagnoses. ]

Explain how physical and mental health factors may need to be considered when communicating with an individual who has dementia
Weegy: Communicating with people with dementia. Dementia is a progressive illness that over time will affect a person's ability to remember and understand basic everyday facts, such as names, dates and places. [ Dementia will gradually affect the way the person communicates. Their ability to present rational ideas and to reason clearly will change. If you are looking after a person with dementia, you may find that as the illness progresses you'll have to start discussions in order to get the person to make conversation. This is common. Their ability to process information gets progressively weaker and their responses can become delayed. ] (More)

Describe the impact the behaviours of carers and others may have on an individual with dementia.
Weegy: It takes a dreadful toll on the sufferer's children as the impact of dementia begins to affect the sufferer's life more and more. [ [ It is physically and emotionally draining to care for a parent who is no longer capable of interacting with you all in [ any meaningful way. Make sure that, as a family, you are always up to date with what help is available to you at every stage, both practically and emotionally. As time goes by residential care may have to be considered and I don't think that guilt should be any part of the process if it becomes necessary. It takes every ounce of health and strength to get through something like this, and if a care home will ease the strain, it is the sensible thing to do in order to remain sane. The most important thing throughout all of this is to retain the love you always had for the person, not the actions you need to take to secure your own health and the health and safety of your loved one. ] (More)
