Positive Attitudes towards Food-related Dementia

Food has been described as important to a person’s identification and culture, as well as providing a strong link to social interactions and psychological well-being . Interacting with others during food related activities, for example food preparation, enables people to maintain relationships and in turn creates meaning to a person and brings a sense of enjoyment and pleasure. Food-related activities can play a positive role in dementia care. However, dementia progression affects cognitive and behavioural functions, particularly in food-related activities and health care providers struggle to maintain this source of enjoyment for people with dementia . As food-related activities have been found to be an enjoyable part of caring this area needs to be discussed in order to find ways of maintaining this pleasure.
