Abstract

OVERVIEW: Despite the high prevalence of dementia among elderly patients in hospitals and nursing homes and the strong association between dementia and feeding difficulty, few sources adequately address effective feeding interventions. Basing their discussion on the conceptual model that grew out of a previously published systematic literature review, the authors address a wide range of assessment and intervention practices specific to various observed behaviors that may aid in feeding patients with dementia.
