Quality Mealtime Experience For All

aged care diet dysphagia food service health nutrition Oct 16, 2020

Do all aged care residents have a good mealtime experience?  How do you know?

Some things to observe closely are:

  • Do any of the care staff know what the modified texture meal actually is?  Or do they guess?
  • Do the care staff communicate what the meal is when assisting the residents?
  • Do the staff make eye contact with the resident or do they engage in conversation with other staff members in the room?
  • Has the modified texture meal been plated considering food preferences?
  • Do the serve sizes look about right?  Or are they very small?

If you have any concerns, one of the experienced aged care NPA Dietitians can assist with either a Zoom or telephone conversation with a staff member or the wider team.
