Description - Feeding and Swallowing Disorders in Dementia by Jacqueline Kindell

Dementia is a syndrome that can lead to increasing difficulties in carrying out activities of daily living. This informative manual draws on research performed by experts to highlight the feeding and swallowing difficulties that can occur. It is also a practical guide that uses this research to offer 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 andlanguage therapists, and others with an interest in swallowing problems, working with people with dementia.
