Lee commented on The Dementia Mealtime Assessment Tool (The DMAT)

Thanks Kate,
Feedback from caregivers on the feasibility of the DMAT is that is it easy to use, requires no training, they can complete an assessment of the person with dmeentia at the mealtime in an average of 7 minutes and create a personalized care plan in an additional 10-20 minutes using the software.
Feedback regarding the practicalities of implementing the DMAT from caregivers included them saying the DMAT helped them to become more observant during mealtimes and more sensitive towards patients when feeding. The suggestions helped them to think about their actions when they face challenges during mealtimes.
Best of luck to everyone in the challenge,
