Swallowing Awareness Day

Held in Winter 2016 in LLandough University Hospital, Cardiff.

All care roles were invited to this special event to raise awareness of swallowing difficulties and how to deal with them.

Gary gave a chef’s perspective around the theory, the issues and how to overcome them. The day included demonstration workshops where Gary showed food presentation techniques, correct procedure of thickening fluids and the importance of precision and safety.

The day also had sessions from speech and language therapists, an oral hygienist and dietitians.
