We Can Help

Offering leading speech pathology services to assist with the ongoing care, nutrition and rehabilitation of seniors and provide support, education and resources to carers and aged care staff.

Making the effects of ageing
easier to swallow

As we get older, our needs intensify, and our care becomes more complex.
Many residents living in aged care facilities will at some point experience difficulty swallowing (also known as dysphagia) and meeting nutritional requirements. This can be caused by neurological conditions like strokes, dementia or Parkinson’s disease or as a result of otherwise healthy ageing.

These mealtime challenges can be uncomfortable, confusing and in some cases frightening for residents, as well as difficult and frustrating for carers.
