describe how a person centred approach can support an individual, with dementia at different levels of ability, to eat and drink
Weegy: Supporting a person with dementia to eat and drink : Meals should be relaxed and unhurried. [ Allow plenty of time and make sure that there are no distractions such as a television or excess noise in the background. Do not feel you need to prepare elaborate meals - it is probably better to devote your energy to ensuring that the person eats and enjoys their food. Preferences and styles of eating may change, try to be flexible. If a person is agitated or distressed, do not pressurise them to eat or drink. Wait until the person is calm and less anxious before offering food and drink. If the person is drowsy or lying down, they may struggle to swallow safely. Ensure that they are alert, comfortable and sitting upright or, if in bed, well-positioned, before offering food and drink. (An occupational therapist can advise on positioning techniques and aids, ask your GP for a referral.) Take care when offering 'just boiled' hot drinks - some people with dementia may lose the ability to judge temperature. If the person appears to have difficulty using cutlery, you may need to prompt the person and guide their hand to their mouth to remind them of the process involved. Alternatively, if a person is struggling to use cutlery to eat, offer foods that can be eaten without a knife and fork, ie finger foods. Foods that can be picked up with the fingers are often easier to eat when co-ordination becomes difficult. If you have to assist a person to eat and drink, talk about what you are offering them to help remind them of tastes and flavours. .................. ] (More)
