Question and answer
Q: explain why it is impt not to assume that an individual with dementia cannot make their own decisions
A: 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. ]

User: describe how the ability of an individual with dementia to make decisions may fluctuate

Weegy: a person with dementia has very poor or no short term memory at all, [ so when it comes to making descisions the answer may change quite alot because they have poor memory recall they may say yes one minute then say no to the exact same question because they cant remember what was asked before hand ]
