摘要

The aging of the elderly will cause mouth or dental's problems, which may affect the eating and eating satisfaction. This research is based on the residents of the elderly home in the North District of the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Exclude dementia, mental confusion, and inability to express for relevant research. The purpose of this study is to (1) to explore the overall satisfaction of residents with institutional diets and influencing factors. (2) Explore possible factors that affect overall satisfaction. (3) Evaluate the influence of oral function on meal satisfaction. In this study, a semi-open structured questionnaire was used to conduct a survey of dietary satisfaction among residents, and a 5-point Likert scale was used to measure the satisfaction score. The survey period was October-November 2016, and 107 interview questionnaires were effectively collected. Through this study, we will explore the relationship between the influencing factors of diet satisfaction and oral function, and find out the factors that affect diet satisfaction, as the basis for the improvement of meals in long-term care centers in the future. The results of the study showed that the residents were most satisfied with the temperature of the meal and the most dissatisfied with the texture. The main reason for dissatisfaction was that vegetables and meat were too hard. Wearing dentures can significantly improve texture satisfaction, thereby changing the desire to eat and the intake of related nutrients. The results of this study show that through the analysis of the relevant influencing factors of the satisfaction questionnaire, it is found that the dental function of the residents is significantly related to meal texture and meal satisfaction. Therefore, improving the related influencing factors can improve the willingness of the elderly to eat food.
