Dysphagia - Part VI

Tips for safely managing dysphagia at home


Stay hydrated

Healthy hydration is key for anyone providing care for an older adult. With a dysphagia diagnosis, all water and drinks must be thickened. Drinking thickened liquids takes longer than drinking non-thickened ones, so managing healthy hydration requires patience and even keener attention from you.


Thickening agents may come as gels or powders that are mixed in with a beverage – typically found in drugstores or online.
