User: 3.2 Describe a range of different techniques that can be used to meet the fluctuating abilities and needs of the individual with dementia

Weegy: To find appropriate activities to meet individual needs of a person with dementia requires creative thinking. [ As in other areas of dementia care, family caregivers are called upon to be resourceful in seeking meaningful recreation. [ Ideally, activities should: compensate for lost abilities; promote self esteem; maintain residual skills and not involve new learning; provide an opportunity for enjoyment, pleasure and social contact; be culturally sensitive. ] ]

User: 3.1 Compare a person centred and a non-person centred approach to dementia care

Weegy: patient centered care is all about the patient rather than the illness. dementia means "bad mind" that denotes being forgetful. the care for patients with such condition requires more understanding and a lot of patience. [ you can give the patient a person a person-centered care when you deliver care that is personalized and constructed specifically to a patient that is treated as an individual rather than a person with just a common type of illness. the approach of the management is rather centralized on preserving the person's dignity and preservation of a quality life instead of a simple mere administration of medications and following a set of routine management for the condition ]
