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. ]
