Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A review of the research on eating problems in severely demented patients gives the impression that, although the general prognosis is bad, there are a lot of things that can be done quite easily that could improve the eating situation for the patient. The most important task, it seems, is to approach the problems from a broad enough perspective to make it possible to treat the patient as a human being first and as a demented patient only secondarily.
