Meals can be a challenging time for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. However, there are steps caregivers can take to help make mealtimes successful. Consider these tips:
- Serve meals in a consistent, familiar place and way whenever possible.
- Offer just one food at a time instead of filling the plate or table with too many options.
- Be patient and give the person enough time to finish the meal.
