Question and answer
Demonstrate how the knowledge of life history of an individual with dementia has been used to provide a diet that meets his/her preferences
It is important to take into consideration the specific needs of certain groups of people with dementia e.g. those who live alone or who have limited financial resources. [ However, such criteria are sometimes used to limit access to services and support for other groups of people with dementia. Similarly, the fact that a person with dementia lives with other people should not lead to an
assumption that the latter will provide the care he/she needs (although there is a legal obligation in some countries for certain relatives to support dependent parents). Accessing appropriate support is particularly problematic when the services available are or were originally intended for a different group of people e.g. the elderly or people with disabilities. For example, services which were designed for people with disabilities are often heavily orientated towards physical needs. In such cases, the typical symptoms of dementia make it difficult for people to use some of the services that are available e.g. meals on wheels, certain home monitoring systems and day care where no transport is provided. As the difficulties that they encounter are not always obvious or even visible, their real needs may go unmet. ]

1.3 Outline how other health and emotional conditions may affect the nutritional needs of an individual with dementia
Weegy: Having a daily routine may help. Calmly reassuring and giving cues to orient the person who has dementia is also helpful in the evening and closer to bedtime. [ [ Try to keep them going to bed at the same time every night. [ Doing calm activities at the end of the day and before bedtime may help the person with dementia sleep better at night. If they are active during the day, these calm activities can make them tired and more able to sleep. Avoid loud noises and activity in the home at night, so the person does not wake up once they are asleep. Do NOT restrain a person with dementia when they are in bed. If you are using a hospital bed that has guard rails in the home, putting the rails up may help keep the person from wandering at night. Always talk with the doctor before giving the patient store-bought sleep medicines. Many sleep aids can make confusion worse. ] (More)
