Solutions to Help Overcome Motor Difficulties

Residents with a Dementia can experience difficulty with cutlery, co-ordination to eat independently and remembering to open their mouths.

Our top tips to help with motor difficulties;

  • Adaptive cutlery may be needed to help maintain independence when eating
  • Add a plate guard and non-slip mat to aid loading the fork or spoon
  • Cutting food up into smaller pieces that can be eaten with a spoon
  • Prompt to remind a person when to open their mouths
  • Finger foods are an option if cutlery is too difficult
