User: Explain why it is important not to assume that an individual with dementia cannot make their own decision

Weegy: Contrary to what most people think about dementia, people with dementia can still make decisions in their everyday lives and with support from partners can continue to do so as their condition advances. [ This is one of the preliminary findings of a two-year research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) into how married couples living with dementia make decisions on a daily basis. The study has also found that people with dementia may need encouragement to make decisions as well as the opportunity to make these decisions for themselves. It is felt that dementia is still quite a stigmatised illness, and those living with the condition are sensitive to other people?s reactions to them. Their confidence can be quite fragile. It is important that they feel good about themselves and know that their views still matter. ]

User: Describe how ability of an individual with dementia to make decisions may fluctuate

Weegy: A person diagnosed with dementia does not necessarily lack capacity. [ However, for people with dementia the loss of the ability to make informed decisions may be a gradual process, so the point at which they are no longer able to make a decision is quite difficult to pinpoint. Also, at some times a person may be quite capable of making their own decisions while at others their dementia can significantly affect their capacity and abilities. If a person's capacity fluctuates or is temporary, an assessment of the person's capacity must be made at the time the decision has to be made. ]
