2.Explain why it is important to be sure an individual has chosen to finish eating and drinking before clearing away? how can you promote active participation when doing this?

Hi tania11,

1. Think about providing a balanced diet, noticing changes that might highlight health issues eg loss of appetite, difficulty swallowing, excessive thirst (diabetes) etc.

2. How would you feel if a waiter whipped your meal away before you had finished? Also the individual may just be slow but still hungry. Wait until they tell you they have finished or you could ask them.

3. Ask them, offer to help, provide the resources they need.

Hope that helps

Aunty Sue
