the worlds and those are the majority in long-term care facilities. People
with dementia have a high probably having eating problems and require
extension assistance during mealtime. There is little known regarding
mealtime situation in Taiwan nursing home. The participated observational
study is a possible way to explore the dinning phenomena. Objective: The
major purpose of this study was to explore eating problems among dementia
elderly using an observational study. Methods: An exploratory and
descriptive study design was used to investigate the social, cultural,
clinical, and environment factors that were related to eating behaviors in
the congregate dining room of one dementia-specialized Taiwan nursing
home. Results: Eating problems among dementia patients were diversified as
well as assistance. There were similar dining situation between western
society and Taiwan; the eating problems became a universal concern.
Several barriers for nutritional care for dementia patients were
identified such as insufficient staffing and time. Environment also plays
an important role in success eating. Nursing assistants lack of enough
knowledge and skills to assist dementia patients with eating and hold
negative attitude toward feeding dementia patients. Conclusion: Adding
