We all know that caring for those suffering with Dementia poses challenges for families and care facilities. In this report by Alzheimer’s Disease International (2014) the nutritional needs and care provided was analyzed. The study found that undernutrition contributes to frailty, skin fragility, falls, hospitalization and mortality. Those with Dementia tend to suffer from progressive weight loss and this should be avoided by caregivers. It was found that the use of oral nutritional supplements can stabilize and even increase weight of those with Dementia. They recommended staff education and training related to mealtime hours and adjustments in the physical eating environment (colours, tableware, etc.) can all improve the caloric intake of residents.

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.
I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
