Due to the consequences of dementia people are unable to maintain a positive self image. Coping strategies that seem to contribute to a positive self image are denial, projection, of withdrawing into a fantasy world. Interventions that are aimed at the maintenance of a positive self image make people with dementia feel useful and valuable.
