Please do not hesitate to call us to discuss your individual facility’s needs. As well as training and development we also provide individuals with swallowing assessments and reviews or communication assessments and therapy. We can assist the kitchen in ensuring modified diets are appropriate for residents with swallowing difficulties and we can conduct menu reviews to assess suitability of menu items for residents requiring modified diets.
