Synopsis

This informative manual draws on expert research to highlight the feeding and swallowing difficulties that can occur with dementia. It is also a practical guide that offers potential strategies to manage these problems. Professionals are encouraged to focus on the needs of the individual by providing practical questions that should be asked when making an assessment. This is achieved through a step-by-step process, which allows a worker to observe, document and manage feeding and swallowing difficulties. Forms, schedules and checklists that can be photocopied are provided to aid in implementation. This is a detailed, practical resource which offers support and direction for speech and language therapists, and others with an interest in swallowing problems, working with people with dementia. It includes case studies to illustrate theory in practice, as well as a wide ranging bibliography.
