In brief: See Below

If in a nursing home, and depending on the severity, the pt.
Will be escorted to the dining room and fed. If lives by himself -- that's the danger of the dementia, patients will forget to eat or forget that they've already eaten. Basically, people with dementia, especially at a later stages, need constant reminders, feeding and being taken care of.
