How To Identify The Communication Strengths And Abilities Of An Individual With Dementia
Weegy: Patients with dementia will show a (typically) slow decline in several areas of mental functioning. Patients have impairments in thinking, memory, judgement and the ability to learn. Depending on the cause, dementia can occur at different rates. [ In some cases, mental functioning will deteriorate over a period of 2 to 10 years. In Vascular dementia, for example, patient symptoms will tend to worsen in steps following strokes. Dementia is not easily identified at first, as it is a fairly slow process.

In advanced stages of dementia, patients may be incapable of following directions, following conversation, or may not be able to remember what they've done. ] (More)
