See firsthand what it means to create meaningful mealtimes in long-term care facilities. This two-video training tool presents a comprehensive mealtime program that focuses on principles of resident autonomy and person-centered care. Special attention is devoted to identifying the needs of people with dementia and understanding the disease's effect on communication, behavior, and eating. Viewers learn about critical components that can improve the dining experience for both residents and staff, and how to prepare and serve food in a way that enables residents to eat as independently as possible.
