Oral Feeding Tips

Oral Feeding Tips

Purpose of Oral Feeding

To provide adequate nutrition and be in control of a proper diet to the your loved ones.

As people grow older, their body system also degenerates which affects the digestion and nutrient absorption.

Reminders:

  1. Ensure patient is in sitting position.
  2. Do not give food/drink when patient is lying down
  3. Be patient - follow the patient's pace
  • Eg: Parkinson or Dementia patients
  • Encourage the patient to chew/swallow if they keep the food in the mouth.

      4. Small amounts at each feeding. Cut the food into small bite portions, to 

          prevent choking.

     4. Don't underfeed/overfeed the patient

     5. Don't force the patient to eat all the food that presented on the plate.
