Explain why it is important not to assume that an individual with dementia cannot make their own decisions.
Weegy: Several domains of competence must be considered, including financial competence, testamentary capacity, competence for living arrangements, for health care, and for driving. [ Planning future arrangements when patients are in the early stages of dementia and can still make their own choices greatly simplifies management. Competence is situation specific, and patients who cannot make decisions on some issues may be able to make decisions on other issues. The patient's lawyer is a valuable resource when discussing the various options and issues. If the patient is able to describe their income and payments, have maintained calculation abilities , and no history of errors in banking or bill paying, then there is no question about financial competence, providing judgement is maintained. Commonly, however, by the time the diagnosis of dementia has been made, some errors and impaired performance will have occurred. The question then becomes whether the patient is able to give power of attorney for financial decisions. ] User: Describe how the ability of an individual with dementia to make decisions may fluctuate User: describe how the ability of an individual with dementia to make decisions may fluctuate Weegy: Dementia which begins gradually and worsens progressively over several years is usually caused by neurodegenerative disease; that is, [ by conditions affecting only or primarily the neurons of the brain and causing gradual but irreversible loss of function of these cells. Less commonly, a non-degenerative condition may have secondary effects on brain cells, which may or may not be reversible if the condition is treated.It is because of these conditions that the ability of the person to take decision fluctuates. ] (More)
