My husband has started having problems with swallowing, coughing and sneezing when eating. Any suggested remedies?
Great advise. I have to do all soft or very small cut up pieces of meat. Putting too much in mouth at once is also a problem. Give him salad fork instead of dinner fork helps some. Going to try to find child size fork that looks like regular . I know Oneida used to make them
There are some videos on YouTube that help with swallowing exercises. This woman is particularly good. She has a few videos you may find helpful.
I have started using a potato masher for my moms vegetables and things not so easy to cut. Boost in the freezer for a short time tastes better also . The thickener for liquids does not always appeal to the older adults. Go online their is a drink Boost breeze that is delicious. You can freeze it if you need to make it thicker and the slightly thaw.
Please make sure his dr is aware of the common Alz swallowing issue hubby is showing.
