caregiver (cg) needs suggestions to make mealtime go more smoothly

Try: Don’t bombard the Care recipient (cr) with visual stimulation during the meal if the kitchen itself is too busy with items on the countertop or surrounding areas move the dining area to a corner of another room with just a small table and a couple of chairs make the food the focus not the conversation even subdued music can be a distraction at a meal if the Care recipient (cr) needs a large towel over their lap put one over yours also adjust the taste of the food sometimes if the cr thinks the food is too bland sprinkle a little brown sugar on top make sure fruit is peeled before giving it to the cr some cr’s cannot tell the difference between the skin of the fruit and the fruit itself
