Finger food is ideal for residents who have difficulty using or can no longer hold cutlery. Fine motor skills deteriorate with age, and food that is easy to eat with fingers can help aged care residents maintain their independence and dignity.
Finger food is also important for residents who find it difficult to sit at a dinner table for any length of time, for example those with dementia. It can be used to encourage continuous snacking throughout the day, ensuring residents are receiving the right nutrients, and the right volume of food to stay healthy.
