Hi lyn2col!
3.1  3.2 and 3.3  Dignity, comfort and enjoyment are supported by cleaning spilled food off someone's chin; supporting them to eat at a speed they care comfortable with (not shovelling food at them) and sitting down with them - eating a meal is a social activity as well as a chance to 'refuel'; not overloading their plate (this is off putting for some people) and being mindful of individual health conditions which may compromise their ability to swallow safely (stroke for example). Adapting support may mean simply slowing down and giving time to chew their food or more complex when someone may need a professional assessment of their ability to eat (maybe they need their teeth examining or new dentures or have oral thrush).  Professionals may range from dentistry assessment to speech and language assessment of their swallowing abiliity or the GP may need to be involved to ensure appropriate referral to a consultant.  If you can think of someone you have supported with eating and drinking and describe the support you had to give that again would add weight to your answer and is especially important because 3.2 and 3.3 are outcomes which you must either demonstrate in the workplace or get a witness statement or be able to reflect upon real work experiences with a witness statement to back up and authenticate your answer.

5.2 and 5.3 Agreed ways of working simply means the care plans and risk assessments, policies and procedures you agree to follow in your workplace.  For eating and drinking, you might be expected to keep a detailed account of what has been eaten and drunk (and that  will not mean 'ate well' or 'ate a good dinner' which doesn't meet the standards and will not back you up should you find yourself in court at any point). Documenting care means meeting the standards for record keeping (detailed sufficiently to ensure continuity of care, dated, timed and signed). You may be involved with weighing individuals and keeping a fluid chart also. These two learning outcomes are also ones you ought to be demonstrating in the workplace and, failing that, you should ideally get a witness statement or be able to reflect upon real work experience and get a back up witness statement to authenticate your answer.
