The scoop about thickened fluids

Most residential aged care facilities (RACFs) have a relatively large stock of thickened fluids. With approximately 68% of residents having dysphagia, many resident require thickened fluids to maintain their pulmonary health. Some sites prefer to use fluids that are pre-thickened, which generally improves the accuracy of the thickness the resident receives.  However the majority of RACFs will have some form of thickening powder on-site. This allows any drink to be made to any of the 3 thickness levels (mildly, moderately or extremely thick).
