User: What effect can positive attitudes have a person with dementia?





Weegy: It has long been recognised that the attitudes, skills and knowledge of staff working with people with dementia have the potential to influence the person’s well-being, quality of life and function. [ Training is often seen as the means by which changes in quality of care can be pursued, and there are an increasing number of opportunities for staff in dementia care to attend training courses, external and in-house, and to achieve an accredited level of competence in care under the vocational qualification framework. ]
