Training programmes and mealtime assistance may improve eating performance for elderly long-term care residents with dementia

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Implications for practice and research: Multifactorial rather than single component interventions are more likely to improve eating performance of older adults with dementia in long-term care. Future research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness and fidelity of interventions in real world settings with nursing caregivers rather than research assistants implementing the interventions. Longitudinal research designs are indicated to evaluate eating performance in the context of the progressive loss of eating ability associated with dementia.
