In Person Session

Separate registration is required to attend this workshop. For more information and to register contact Joy Douglas, PhD, RDN, CSG, LDN at [email protected].

Interested in learning a new hand-feeding technique to combat weight loss and malnutrition in your older adult patients with dementia? Clinical guidelines call for careful hand-feeding, but what does this mean and how do we teach caregivers how to do it?

Join us for a fun, interactive skills workshop where you will:

  • Experience the sensory changes that our patients with dementia live with each day
  • Learn mealtime techniques to assist individuals in the different phases of dementia
  • Practice hand-feeding techniques to assist individuals who can no longer eat independently

Registered Dietitians who participate can earn 3 hours of continuing professional education by completing this workshop. Participants who complete the post-training evaluation will receive a $25 gift card!
