The dining experience may be the most challenging, yet rewarding, time of the day for both those with cognitive impairment as well as their care providers. To create a truly successful dining experience requires that we embrace a process (rather than a task) oriented approach in which we focus on the dining experience itself - including the social and sensory aspects of the mealtime experience - rather than only the nutritional aspects.
This illuminating webinar will provide participants with the knowledge and abilities necessary to:
- Develop effective meal delivery strategies to reduce disruptive meal time behaviors.
- Develop effective meal delivery strategies to enhance the social dining experience.
- Explore strategies to encourage family participation within the dining experience
- Identify the role of care providers as they contribute to, or detract from the residents dining experience.
