Glenn Knight CEO Training 2 CARE Group and Co-published Author for dementia comments, "Menu boards are now a vital tool to the dementia landscape as food intake will become a huge part of the care that we provide. We need to ensure that we make every effort for people with dementia to easily choose the food they like and know exactly what is available. Meal times become a major part of a dementia homes day and good food intake starts with clarity, knowing exactly what they are eating before it arrives at the table. We are all individual and therefor choice is king, so ensure that there are a variety of wholesome foods available. This menu boards quality is second to none and I hope that care providers will invest in making their meal times as insightful as possible".
