explain how to increase a carers understanding of dementia and a person centred approach?
It's very important that people with dementia are treated with respect. It is important to remember that a person with dementia is still a unique and valuable human being, despite their illness. [ This factsheet looks at ways that you can help the person to feel valued and good about themselves. When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel
vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them - including their carers, health and social care professionals, friends and family - need to do everything they can to help the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. ........... ]

descibe the impact the behaviours of carers and others may have on an individual with dementia
Weegy: Dementia can have a big impact on a person’s behaviour. It can make them feel anxious, lost, confused and frustrated. Although each person with dementia handles these feelings in their own way, certain behaviour is common in people with the disease. [ This includes: repeating questions or carrying out an activity over and over again walking and pacing up and down aggression, shouting and screaming becoming suspicious of other people If you are experiencing these behaviours, or are looking after someone who behaves in this way, it's important to remember that this is an attempt to communicate how they're feeling and that they are not being deliberately difficult. If you stay calm and work out why they're expressing themselves in this way, you may be able to calm them down ] (More)

Explain the diffrence between a reality orientation approach to interactions and a validation approach?
Weegy: Approaches of disoriented elderly people can be distinguished in two main perceptions, Reality Orientation and Validation. Reality Orientation appeals to still existing functions and helps people to get oriented toward the reality. [ Validation goes with people into their inner world, where feelings dominate and facts are no longer important. In this article both approaches are explicated. Further, it is stated that measuring the effects of Reality Orientation or Validation have the same pitfalls, such as lack of adequate scales, unclear definitions of the behaviour and symptoms of patients involved, and the risk of measuring a Hawthorne effect. The author states that Validation meets the demands of disoriented people better than Reality Orientation. She argues to think in-depth about the aims of psychogeriatric care, in order to define what effects should be pursued and measured. Nursing diagnoses should be used instead of medical diagnoses. ] (More)

explain how information about personality and life history can be used to support an individual to live well with dementia?
Weegy: High-quality support for people with dementia begins with the recognition that each person is an individual with their own needs, preferences and life story. [ An understanding of the experiences of the person with dementia, of their strengths and abilities, combined with a multi-disciplinary team approach, will ensure the person’s quality of life is enhanced. There are many forms of dementia and they all involve permanent and progressive damage to the brain. It is not an inevitable consequence of ageing. Despite images that show people with dementia as disoriented or dishevelled, in reality they look like everyone else. This means that unusual behaviour caused by dementia may be misunderstood by other people. For example, we may assume that a person will remember us if we have met them on a number of previous occasions, but for a person with dementia the damage to the brain may have caused short-term memory loss or facial recognition problems, rendering them unable to recognise a face that should be familiar. ......... ] (More)
