User: Explain why it is important to see dementia as a disaability

Weegy: To ensure that as health and social care workers we adapt the environment etc to the person with the disability rather than the other way around. [ If someone has a physical disability we alter their environment, such as, providing a lift or a ramp, so that the person can function in a 'normal' way. If we see dementia in a similar way we realise that we need to adapt our care provision to suit their needs not change them and their behaviour to suit the setting e.g. of the care home etc ]
