  1. On our Geriatrics unit, if someone is not able to cut their meat, we send a request to dietary to have meats already chopped so the person with dementia does not feel bad that they are not able to cut it up themselves. If they are unable to use a spoon we request soup in a cup. We also get a list of preferences from the family upon admission.. as well as dislikes. We request snacks between meals as well, especially for those who do not eat large meals.

  2. Great ideas to implement at home as well. Makes a lot of sense about the snacks. Thanks.
