One of our residents with dementia fills his mouth too full and doesn't swallow quickly enough when eating to the point of food falling out of his mouth. This is upsetting for other residents and embarassing for his family. Some feel physically sick to see it. We've tried prompting him to stop putting food in, but he gets cranky asking if we think he can't even feed himself. Any suggestions?
