Describe how the experience of dementia may be different for individuals who are from different ethnic backgrounds
Weegy: Every person is unique and dementia affects people differently - no two people will have symptoms that develop in exactly the same way. [ [ An individual's personality, general health and social situation are all important factors in determining the impact of dementia on him or her. The most common early symptoms of dementia are: Memory loss Declining memory, especially short-term memory, is the most common early symptom of dementia. People with ordinary forgetfulness can still remember other facts associated with the thing they have forgotten. For example, they may briefly forget their next-door neighbour's name but they still know the person they are talking to is their next-door neighbour. A person with dementia will not only forget their neighbour's name but also the context. Difficulty performing familiar tasks People with dementia often find it hard to complete everyday tasks that are so familiar we usually do not think about how to do them. A person with dementia may not know in what order to put clothes on or the steps for preparing a meal. Problems with language Occasionally everyone has trouble finding the right word but a person with dementia often forgets simple words or substitutes unusual words, making speech or writing hard to understand. Disorientation to time and place We sometimes forget the day of the week or where we are going but people with dementia can become lost in familiar places such as the road they live in, forget where they are or how they got there, and not know how to get back home. A person with dementia may also confuse night and day. Poor or decreased judgement People with dementia may dress inappropriately, wearing several layers of clothes on a warm day or very few on a cold day. Problems with keeping track of things A person with dementia may find it difficult to follow a conversation or keep up with paying their bills. Misplacing things Anyone can temporarily misplace his or her wallet or keys. ] ] (More)
