 We attempted eating training as one care plan for an elderly person with dementia and left hemiplegia. Various team staff members, including OTRs, generally perform the care plan. Indirect swallowing approaches, such as oral hygiene, swallowing exercise, ice massage and so on, were attempted by OTRs. As a result, inattention and hemineglect also improved, and the patient's oral intake was achieved with minimal assistance. Moreover, the recovery of mental function, such as communication, etc., was achieved as a result of these approaches.
