Webinar: Dining, Dementia and Dysphagia

April 7, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM

Individuals afflicted with dementia often suffer from dysphagia. Physical limitations, sensory changes, decline in cognition, and other issues may ultimately impact a person’s ability to consume food and fluids. This presentation will explore these issues along with interventions we can employ to promote safe eating practices.

Identify two issues that increase the risk for dysphagia
Recall when a speech pathologist should be consulted
Identify two adaptive equipment tools that can be used
Identify at least two safe eating practice guidelines
