describe how a person centred approach enable individual with dementia to be involved in there own care and support
Personalisation is intended to transform social care by putting people at the centre of their own care so that they have independence, choice and control over the services they use. [ Alzheimer's Society supports the stated aims of the personalisation agenda. It has the potential to improve quality of life for people with dementia and their carers, by reinforcing the importance of placing the
individual at the centre of their care, with a shift towards early intervention and locally based services. Personal budgets - the main approach to delivering the personalisation agenda - can enable people with dementia and their carers to exercise more choice and control over their care. Alzheimer's Society supports all people with dementia having a personal budget, in the form that is most appropriate for them. However, significant steps are needed to enable individuals to take advantage of personal budgets. Clearer evidence, information and support is vital. Without making personalisation work for the large number of people living with dementia, the personalisation agenda will not be able to successfully and universally deliver the type of change envisaged by the government. ]

describe how cognitive functional and emotional changes associated with dementia can affect eating drinking and nutrition
Weegy: Although impaired memory and cognitive disturbance are characteristics of all dementias, the specific cognitive, emotional, and behavioral deficits the person with dementia experiences will differ depending on the type of dementia, stage of disease, [ [ comorbid conditions, and individual factors. Moreover, one or more causes of dementia can coexist, as in the case of the older adult suffering from both Alzheimer disease and vascular dementia, and cause a "mixed" symptomatology, in which the characteristic losses of more than one disease are seen. As a result, knowing the type of dementia is important to guiding decisions about nursing interventions. Prevalence rates of Alzheimer disease and other dementias vary from study to study, depending on the source of subjects, methods used to assess cognitive impairment, and definitions of dementia. However, all reports agree that the number of people living with dementia will increase dramatically as the population ages. Alzheimer disease is the most common type of dementia. Characterized by the presence of neurofibrillary plaques and tangles in the brain, it can be caused by a variety of genetic, environmental, and other factors. The prevalence of Alzheimer disease increases markedly with advancing age, with the highest rates among those 80 years and older. Diagnostic criteria include the presence of cognitive deficits, including memory impairment and one or more additional cognitive disturbances (aphasia, agnosia, apraxia, or changes in executive functioning), significant decline from previous levels of functioning, and gradual and continuous decline of ability. Behavioral symptoms are not common in early stages; even memory loss is often concealed by use of preserved social skills and memory aides. Over an eight-to-10-year period, increasing functional dependence and loss of ability to manage aspects of daily life (such as shopping, food preparation, medication and financial oversight, and driving) is observed. ...
