Alzheimer’s Australia NSW CEO The Hon. John Watkins AM said proper nutrition was a basic human right, however it was being overlooked in people with dementia living at home.
"Every person with dementia will have difficulty with nutrition at some point," Mr Watkins said...
"Because eating is such an ‘every day’ occurrence its importance is being overlooked, but if you are living with dementia it’s often the ‘every day’ things that matter most. Poor nutrition can lead to much worse outcomes in people with dementia who may, as a result of malnutrition, enter residential care earlier and require longer and more frequent hospital stays."
