COURSE OVERVIEW:

Join Toni Fisk as she discusses dementia and how it affects the dining experience. Characteristics of dementia are demonstrated and the direct correlation of how it relates to the socialization and the action of eating will be shared. Our overall mission is to provide socialization, increased food consumption, improved hydration, and embracing dignified dining.

We will segue into the service standards and environmental aspects of the physical dining space. Best practice recommendations for the standard dining model and what considerations/actions should be undertaken to improve the dining experience for persons living with dementia
