As we get older, swallowing can become more difficult. This can lead to choking while enjoying a meal. To prevent this from happening, we train caregivers to make sure a senior in their care takes small bites. In addition, we ask them to encourage an eater to chew their food well and not to rush to complete the meal. Also, it helps to add moisture by regularly take small sips of fluid while dining. #caregivertip
Kobby's company is Bixby Health & Safety. They train our staff on CPR and emergency procedures.
Our caregivers help their residents successfully deal with physical, mental, social and emotional challenges on a regular basis. At the same time, they also strive to help each senior to maintain their personal dignity.
On this page, our caregivers share some of their experiences with the hope of aiding family members who are caring for an elderly loved one.
