Which of the following nursing interventions would support optimal memory function for a client with dementia?

1. Develop stimulating and meaningful therapeutic activities.
2. Remind the client of forgotten events.
3. Orient the client to reality.
4. Restrain the client when agitated.

Explanation

Cognitive function will be supported by participation in meaningful activities that the client enjoys. Stimulating activities will also promote self-esteem and encourage the client to attain the highest level of cognitive function possible. Options 2, 3, and 4 could lead to frustration and more confusion. The core issue of the question is planning for a client with dementia that supports remaining memory function. Use nursing knowledge and the process of elimination to make a selection.
