What to Consider

Here are four things to consider during meal time with a loved one who exhibits signs of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.


Regular, nutritious meals may become a challenge for people with dementia. They may become overwhelmed with too many food choices, forget to eat or have difficulty using utensils. In some circumstances, adaptive devices like plate guards and special utensils, can be used to assist.


Proper nutrition is important to keep the body strong and healthy. For a person with any form of dementia, poor nutrition may increase behavioral symptoms and cause weight loss.


Staying hydrated may be a problem as well. Encourage drinking by offering plenty of water and other beverages throughout the day or foods with high water content, such as fruit or soup.

Their food preferences

Take into consideration the food selections they prefer and pay attention to their feedback on taste.
