How people with stroke and healthy older people experience the eating process

How people with stroke and healthy older people experience the eating process

Journal of Clinical Nursing 9(2): 255-264

The aim of this study was to describe the process of eating, experiences of eating and oral functions. Participants consisted of 30 people with first stroke and localization of the damage verified by computer topography (CT), and 15 healthy older people. All were observed during test-meals, interviewed about eating, and oral functions were tested. The results demonstrated that most (21) people with stroke had some difficulties in eating and expressed feelings of fear and shame about eating and changed physical and social appearance, mainly related to difficulties in preparing and transporting food to the mouth as well as swallowing deficits.
