Examples of behaviour: lack of individualised care, inappropriate confinement or restrictions, sensory deprivation, inappropriate use of rules, custom and practice, no flexibility of bedtimes or waking times, dirty clothing or bed linen, lack of personal possessions or clothing, deprived environment or lack of stimulation, misuse of medical procedures. User: Define self neglect Weegy: Hi! What do you wanted to know about neglect? User: Difine self neglect Weegy: self neglect: Self-neglect is a behavioral condition in which an individual neglects to attend to their basic needs, such as personal hygiene, appropriate clothing, feeding, [ or tending appropriately to any medical conditions they have.[1] Extreme self-neglect can be known as Diogenes syndrome. Self-neglect can be as a result of brain injury, dementia or mental illness.[2] It can be a result of any mental or physical illness which has an effect on the person's physical abilities, energy levels, attention, organisational skills or motivation. A decrease in motivation can also be an unfortunate side effect of necessary psychiatric medications, leading to those requiring them being at higher risk of self-neglect than might be caused by their illness alone. ] (More)
