At apetito we understand that living with dysphagia can have a profound impact on the residents in your homes. Often, residents experiencing dysphagia may encounter unintended weight loss, challenges with eating and drinking, disinterest in food and reductions in dignity and quality of life.
It is for these reasons, apetito are committed raising awareness of this condition and supporting our care homes to better understand the risks that swallowing difficulties can present.
This session is aimed at care home owners and managers and is designed to improve awareness and understanding of dysphagia and IDDSI.
The 2012 ‘Dysphagia in the elderly report’ highlighted that 68% of care home residents are living with some form of dysphagia or swallowing difficulties. We know how important this topic is for you and your staff to guarantee your residents safety.
Our webinar will be hosted by our registered dietitians; Declan Henderson – apetito Specialist Nutrition Manager and apetito Company Dietitian – Emily Stuart.
