This web seminar will identify selected key factors that affect nutrition and eating when individuals have dementia, as well as identify signs that should raise concern. Intervention strategies to promote safe and effective eating behaviors and programs through the progression of the disease will be discussed. The program will cover a variety of strategies and techniques to help address concerns by sharing how to provide the right amount and types of assistance and environmental supports for people with dementia.

Participants in this web seminar will:

  • Discuss aspects of dementia that affect nutrition and oral intake.
  • Match common issues at each level of dementia to interventions that address nutritional or oral intake concerns at that stage.
  • Be able to determine whether nutrition and eating support is being optimized at each level based on the person’s abilities, needs, and disease status.
  • Earn one hour of  *free* continuing education credit by attending the event and completing a CEU survey
