Swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) can include:

  • having difficulty chewing food
  • food/drink getting stuck in the throat
  • coughing with eating and/or drinking
  • choking on food

This can impact:

  • socialising with friends/family
  • eating out at restaurants or events
  • nutrition and health
  • independence and confidence

Swallowing difficulties can occur after a stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), progressive neurological condition or other disability. Assessment of swallowing disorders can be conducted in the client’s home, or in residential care facilities. Following assessment, a report will be provided with recommendations. Recommendations can include modifications to diet or fluids, or strategies to help make swallowing more effective. In some cases, we can also suggest therapy techniques to improve swallowing.
