Question and answer
Q: 1.2 explain how physical and mental health factors may need to be considered when communicating with an individual who has dementia
A: An early sign that someone's language is being affected by dementia is that they can't find the right words - particularly the names of objects. [ The person may substitute an incorrect word, or may not find any word at all. [ There may come a time when the person can hardly communicate through language at all. Not only will they be unable to find the words of objects: they may even forget the
names of friends and family. People with dementia often confuse the generations - mistaking their wife for their mother, for example. This may be very distressing for their loved ones, but it's a natural aspect of their memory loss. The person with dementia may be trying to interpret a world that no longer makes sense to them because their brain is processing information incorrectly. Sometimes the person with dementia and those around them will misinterpret each other's attempts at communication. These misunderstandings can be difficult, and may require some support. Difficulties with communication can be upsetting and frustrating for the person with dementia and for those around them, but there are lots of ways to help make sure that you understand each other. ] ]
