How to support individual to eat or drink?

  •          Never rush any person and they should be encouraged to eat at their own pace.  
  •          Do not offer the next when anyone have not finished their mouthful eating or still chewing  or grinding inside mouth while you are assisting someone in feeding.
  •      Provide encouragement if someone is not keen to eat or drink. Also try to find out the difficulty or preference and offer them according to it. 
  •          Do not wait near someone while they are eating unless they need assistance. Even if someone needs assistance sit by him. 
  •          Make sure the person has finished eating before removing their plate. In this case, you can ask for permission to avoid deprivation and embarrassment.
