explain why it is impt not to assume that an individual with dementia cannot make their own decisions
Weegy: It's important not to assume that a person suffering from dementia cannot make their own decisions because they are not living in the same reality that we are. [ Depending on how progressed their dementia is, they hardly know what year it is or what day it is. Sometimes they even forget who people are that they have known their whole lives. For an example: My grandfathers brother who is still living has severe dementia. On a two hour drive he asked my grandfather multiple times who he was and where they were going. It's a sad thing to feel like you're taking someones rights away but it is for their own good and you may even be saving their lives. ] (More)
