Increased independence and autonomy in what people do. An [ opportunity for individuals in health and social care settings to have a say in matters of direct concern to their lives. Increased
opportunities for social contact and interpersonal relationships. Encouraging involvement and self-awareness. Individuals become more involved in the community and more aware of opportunities and what they can hope for themselves. Increased opportunities for learning and development of important skills, knowledge, education and employment. Enhanced well-being, with increases in self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief. The benefits of active participation include the above primary benefits where the individual gains from its application in the real world of health and social care practice, but there are also some secondary benefits. The secondary benefits can be described as benefits that occur as a result of active participation, but are not a direct aim of active participation. These include: Decreasing the likelihood of abuse. As the individual engages positively by actively participating is area of their life, such as in personal care, the scope for abuse by others is reduced. Decreasing vulnerability.

Explain the importance of involving individuals with dementia in a range of activities
Weegy: Involving people with dementia in all aspects of research is increasingly recognised as being essential to good dementia research. [ Their involvement as research participants is of paramount importance and recognised as a significant contribution to society. This also reflects their value within society and their equal right to participate in research.As people with dementia are equal members of society, they have views to share about a wide range of issues, in the same way as do people with diabetes, cancer or no health problems at all. People with dementia, as the term implies, “have dementia” but each person is different (e.g. might be a public transport user, go shopping, be an ecologist, enjoy skiing etc.) and has something to contribute towards society. The topic of this report is dementia research but clearly, people with dementia should not be excluded from taking part in research about other topics of interest to them just on the basis of their diagnosis. ] (More)
