Due to the decrease in cognitive function from Alzheimer’s, daily routines such as eating might become a difficult task to perform for those suffering from the disease. One could be overwhelmed by the choice of food, or forget that he or she needs to eat. Using forks and spoons might be just as much of a challenge because of the decreased brain and body function. So here are a few tips from the Alzheimer’s Association to make meal time a bit easier to deal with. In today’s world, many watches television when they eat dinner. However, for an Alzheimer’s patient, that could be very distracting to a point where it agitates them. The placement of food on the table can also mean the different between eating and not eating for certain Alzheimer’s patients. Lastly, it is important to be patient and supportive throughout the process. Being flexible in their food preference as well as giving them time to eat enables them to process the situation much better than otherwise.
