  • All pages easily wiped clean and contained in a ring-bound book

Picture menus for care homes have many advantages over the standard methods of taking drink and meal requests from residents. 

The combination of a colourful image and text helps people with cognitive loss make an informed choice on their eating habits.

Picture Menus for Dementia

People with memory impairment and cognitive loss can be very easily influenced, when unsure of a decision they may simply take a guess. This can vary from repeating what the person next to them has requested, to naming the first food that comes to their mind.

There is also large amounts of evidence that shows that providing residents with a name and image is the best method, as this stimulates both the visual and language areas of the brain, increasing the chance of accurate memory recall.

Picture menus for dementia also present older patients with multiple clear options and on a one-to-one basis, the decision that is made is more likely to be their own, and one they are happy with.

Advantages over fixed menu boards 

There are some advantages of using picture menu cards for dementia patients, in comparison to fixed menu boards in care homes:

  • Menu boards can be hard to read for residents
  • The more options that are available on a menu board, the smaller the text, increasing the reading difficulty
  • If many choices are offered on one large board, it can cause confusion
  • Larger and more complicated menu boards have a higher cost 

The Care Home Menu Book only has 4 options per page, this reduces 74 total options to smaller and more manageable sections. These 74 options are also grouped depending on meal time and similarities.
