Alzheimer’s Disease: Natural Feeding Techniques

This 14 minute video will show your caregiving staff how to manage feeding difficulties in late stage Alzheimer’s residents. Through the use of the procedures outlined in this video, most late stage Alzheimer’s patients can continue to be fed orally rather than with a gastrostomy tube.

The video also dramatically demonstrates, through three cases studies, that natural oral feeding techniques (rather than tube feeding) can:

  • decrease infection
  • increase patient comfort
  • improve quality of life for the patient
