Eating and Feeding Issues in Older Adults with Dementia

Older adults with dementia often have an added risk of poor nutrition and hydration, due to cognitive loss. The Edinburgh Feeding and Dementia Scale equips caregivers to observe the older adult for eating or feeding difficulties, and target specific interventions that increase nutritional intake. Includes suggestions on when and how often to do an assessment to ensure accuracy. Caregivers will also find helpful insights on how an older adult™s ability to eat is affected by late-stage Alzheimer’s. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
