June is National Dysphagia Awareness Month in the USA. But you don’t need to be in the USA to participate. The website www.swallowingdisorderfoundation.com has lots of ideas of how you can take part and run your own events wherever you are in the world.
It’s an important event because clinicians, carers and doctors not dealing with it on a daily basis are not aware of its impact on treating the primary condition and the overall well being of those that have it.
Believe it or not, here in the UK, one doctor didn’t believe in dysphagia and would not prescribe our Slõ Drinks or any other thickener!
Thankfully that is the exception and the importance of identifying dysphagia is slowly being accepted. But more needs to be done and this event will help.
If you want to take part and want to experience making and drinking a drinks for someone with dysphagia we can send you some samples of our Slõ Drinks. Got to www.slodrinks.com, decide what you would like to try and then email your selection and postal address to email@example.com
