Dementia is a syndrome associated with an ongoing decline of the brain and its abilities. This includes problems with: * memory loss * thinking speed * mental agility * language * understanding * judgment People with dementia can lose interest in their usual activities, and have problems controlling their emotions. They may also find social situations challenging, lose interest in socializing, and aspects of their personality may change.

As dementia affects a person's mental abilities, they may find planning and organizing difficult.
* A resident may be suffering from confusion, either temporarily because of an acute medical problem, or as a result of dementia. The elderly often have some degree of sensory impairment and this also has an impact on communication. * A health care worker might be dealing with someone suffering from a mental illness. This may take many forms; perhaps the client is depressed and reluctant to speak, or may be deluded or hallucinating. This makes communication challenging and the care worker needs to learn strategies to improve her sensitivity.
This allows the patient to have a more active say in their health care and the tools to help improve their own health situation. Health care providers have noticed the value of engaging patients to have more said in their health care. Health care providers have noticed that by managing health care plans will streamline services and cut cost and shortened hospital stays and show patients and their families how to provide care for themselves. By using electronic communication it allows for more interaction, between consumers, business, it allows for two way communication. This allows a new way of thinking on advertising and a new way of handling public relations.
In this type of discussion the staff is free to introduce themselves and discuss a few ideas they think might benefit the clinic. Sometimes with a change of management it is best to include your team members in brainstorming to get fresh perspectives and see where their strengths and weaknesses are. At this time you, as supervisor, can discuss team work and delegation, therefore making it a team effort. In order to monitor what works and what doesn’t work the team can expect periodic monitoring to assist with any changes that are made (Martin 2012). This will help Mrs. W. to avoid from feeling that she has been singled out in this area.
This is because health and social care professionals need to be able to communicate with each other to deliver good care to service users. They can do this by having group discussions, group meeting.

Paper on Cognitive Interventions Based on a discussion among the students in the team; they all agree that before an intervention could be initiated it is important that prior to beginning treatment, the patient and therapist should meet for a consultation session, or mutual interview. The consultation gives the therapist the opportunity to make an initial assessment of the patient and recommend a course of treatment and goals for therapy. It also gives the patient an opportunity to find out important details about the therapist's approach to treatment, professional credentials, and any other issues of interest; before the starting of a session with a therapist, how can the client who has had a minor stroke and is fearful of falling

If an individual has suffered from a stroke they may have restricted mobility in the affected side of their body, they may be unable to stand or to balance and may have difficulty moving their arm/hand to carry out day to day tasks. Outcome 1 Question 3 If an individual is unable to carry out tasks due to a lack of mobility they may as a result suffer from low self-esteem and feel frustrated with their self for not being able to carry out a particular task. They may be unable to do things when they wish and may have to wait for support or help from a family member or carer. Outcome 1 Question 4 Being able to maintain mobility will have a positive effect on an individual’s wellbeing and well as possibly help improve their physical condition.

Information sharing can safeguard workers and clients, the involvement of multiple agencies could mean that something is spotted that might not have been otherwise. Partnership working means communicating with others and sharing information and another advantage of this is that it encourages compliance with care and treatment. It also means that there is a streamlined approach to care, it encourages all parties involved to meet a certain standard/level. When people work together closely they communicate more, build relationships and bonds, learning each other’s principles and values and can then work together even more effectively, improved relationships result in improved care. On the flip side to this; poor communication when sharing information can have a detrimental effect on care.
