Demonstrate how the knowledge of life history of an individual with dementia has been used to provide a diet that meets preferences
Weegy: It's very important that people with dementia are treated with respect. It is important to remember that a person with dementia is still a unique and valuable human being, despite their illness. [ This factsheet looks at ways that you can help the person to feel valued and good about themselves. When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them - including their carers, health and social care professionals, friends and family - need to do everything they can to help the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. Helping the person feel valued The person with dementia needs to feel respected and valued for who they are now, as well as for who they were in the past. There are many things that the people around them can do to help, including: trying to be flexible and tolerant making time to listen, have regular chats, and enjoy being with the person showing affection in a way they both feel comfortable with finding things to do together, like creating a life history book. What's in a name? Our sense of who we are is closely connected to the names we call ourselves. It's important that people address the person with dementia in a way that the person recognises and prefers. Some people may be happy for anybody to call them by their first name or nickname. Others may prefer younger people, or those who do not know them very well, to address them formally and to use courtesy titles, such as Mr or Mrs. Respecting cultural values Make sure you explain the person's cultural or religious background, and any rules and customs, to anyone from a different background so that they can behave accordingly. ] (More)
