outline the social model of dementia
Weegy: Social Model: ? Focus on individual?s skills, capabilities and achievements retained ? Person centred approach eg recognise individuality, enabling choice, looking at the person as a united whole. [ For people with dementia, this model carries important implications, for example: ? the condition is not the ?fault? of the individual ? the focus is on the skills and capacities the person retains rather than loses ? the individual can be fully understood (his or her history, likes/dislikes, and so on) ? the influence is recognised of an enabling or supportive environment ? the key value is endorsed of appropriate communication ? opportunities should be taken for rehabilitation or re-enablement ? the responsibility to reach out to people with dementia lies with people who do not (yet) have dementia (Gilliard et al., 2005). ] User: outline the impact that the negative attitudes and behaviours of others may have on a person with dementia? Weegy: Having a daily routine may help. Calmly reassuring and giving cues to orient the person who has dementia is also helpful in the evening and closer to bedtime. [ Try to keep them going to bed at the same time every night. [ Doing calm activities at the end of the day and before bedtime may help the person with dementia sleep better at night. If they are active during the day, these calm activities can make them tired and more able to sleep. Avoid loud noises and activity in the home at night, so the person does not wake up once they are asleep. Do NOT restrain a person with dementia when they are in bed. If you are using a hospital bed that has guard rails in the home, putting the rails up may help keep the person from wandering at night. Always talk with the doctor before giving the patient store-bought sleep medicines. Many sleep aids can make confusion worse. ] ] (More)
