Dementia and a Healthy Diet

Recently we sent you the Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Dementia Bulletin which contained information regarding news and issues affecting those living with Dementia.

One aspect that Inspire Doncaster and our Support Workers are keen to promote is that of healthy eating. It can be difficult for carers to encourage their loved ones to maintain a healthy diet especially when the person living with Dementia frequently forgets to eat or loses interest in food. 

"Eating a healthy and balanced diet is important for a person’s physical and mental health. Not eating and drinking enough can increase the risk of dehydration, weight loss, a urinary tract infection and constipation. These health problems can be particularly problematic for someone with dementia as they can increase confusion and the risks of delirium, and sometimes make the symptoms of dementia worse"

Dementia UK published a leaflet which offers help and advice on eating and drinking - Staying Well with Dementia. To download the leaflet click
