describe the impact of early diagnosis and follow up to diagnosis of dementia
Weegy: The following are the impacts of early and follow up to diagnosis of dementia: -A diagnosis of dementia can be devastating – but it can also come as a relief. -An early diagnosis opens the door to future care and treatment.-An early diagnosis can [ help people take control of their lives and plan ahead. -Dementia is people's biggest fear in later life – ahead of cancer. A major report on the benefits of early diagnosis shows that a diagnosis is often greeted with severe shock, with feelings of disbelief, anger, loss and grief (ADI 2011). However, a diagnosis is often regarded by those with dementia and family members as a ‘positive event', particularly when the initial shock has worn off. Critically, the response to a diagnosis depends on how a person with dementia is told about it – and the level of support that is available to them and their families after diagnosis. ] (More)

Explain when and why hand-washing should be carried out
Weegy: It is important that hand washing is carried out correctly to prevent the spread of infection. [ Studies show that health care staff frequently use poor hand washing techniques and the most commonly neglected areas are the tips of the fingers, palm of the hand, and the thumb. Proper hand washing is extremely important, whether using gloves or not. If using gloves, hand washing should be carried out before putting gloves on, between glove changes and after gloves are removed. The problem with the use of gloves is that in situations where staff is not given proper training in food safety, gloves are often perceived as a barrier to food contamination. Staff may then proceed to carry out many non-food related tasks (e.g. handling money, emptying bins, wiping counters) while wearing the same pair of gloves that they then use to prepare food. Hands should be washed as often as necessary and always: • Before starting work • Before handling cooked or ready-to-eat food • After handling or preparing raw food • After handling waste • After cleaning duties • After using the toilet • After blowing nose, sneezing or coughing • After eating drinking or smoking • After handling money ] (More)
