Have A Plan To Prevent Choking

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
