Describe how myths and stereotypes related to dementia may affect the individual and their carersWeegy:
Myth #1: Dementia only affects other people...it cannot happen to me or to people I know. [ Dementia affects only the patient, not his or her family.
Fact: Uncertainty or confusion about the causes and effects of dementia may provide someone a rationale to deny that a family member has the illness because they do not belong in the "at risk" group. 6%-8% of people over age 65 have dementia and 33% of those over age 85 have some dementia symptoms.
