Stroke & Dysphagia Support


Dysphagia affects most stroke survivors. Doctors and speech therapists generally suggest stroke patients with swallowing difficulties have a soft diet to reduce the risk of choking. However, soft foods can be unpalatable, contributing to meal skipping and malnutrition risk. In addition, taking care of patients with dysphagia may increase the caregiver's stress level.
