User: Explain when it may be necessary to refer to others when supporting individuals with dementia





Weegy: Carers of a person with dementia need support so they can look after themselves. Carers can learn to manage stress and fatigue, and make sure that support is available. [ Men who care for someone with dementia can find the task challenging as they may not have the emotional support network of women, and may need extra help. Carers may have to deal with many different feelings, including guilt, grief, loss or anger. Support and respite care is available for carers. The physical and emotional demands of caring for someone with dementia can be high. As the amount of care that is needed increases, more time and energy is required from the carer. If you are caring for a person with dementia, you need to look after yourself or the demands may wear you down. If you are worn down, caring will become even more difficult and it will not be easy to continue balancing your own needs as a carer with those of family and the person with dementia. You need support and assistance to care for someone with dementia. Read more: ]

Describe the role that carers can have in the care and support of Individuals with dementia User: Describe the role that carers can have in the care and support of Individuals with dementia User: 1. Describe the role that carers can have in the care and support of individuals with dementia
Weegy: Since the early 1980s, researchers, carers' organisations and other interested groups have argued for the need to value carers and provide them with adequate support. [ By investigating the concept of carer involvement in one hospital setting, a study by Walker et al (1999; Walker and Dewar, 2001) explored some of the main issues highlighted repeatedly in the literature. In particular, the lack of information given to carers and their exclusion from the decision-making process was highlighted. Involvement in decision-making is a complex process. The Walker study unravelled some of these complexities in hospital settings and produced a set of guidelines to enhance lay-carer involvement in decision-making for people with dementia. The guidelines were further validated in a project with groups of carers in a variety of settings (Goulbourne et al, 2001), which is discussed in this paper. Read more: ] (More)
