Feeding your dependent client


Some clients will require assistance with their meals due to overall weakness, paralysis, or confusion. Others may be able to feed themselves, but will need help to prepare their meal trays. As a caregiver, you can have a major impact on a client’s nutrition by knowing how to provide assistance and encouragement at mealtime.

Following completion of material, participants will be able to:

1. Identify common feeding problems.
2. Describe strategies to overcome these feeding problems.
3. Identify steps for feeding a client.
4. Identify ways to promote independence when eating.
5. Identify signs of dysphagia.
6. Discuss feeding techniques for clients with dysphagia.

I look upon the “Herb Interaction” book as a “quickie” for my pharmacy team, no need to get bogged down on the computer.

The book on “foot ulcers” spoke to me, I now understand the importance of foot care.
Janice. (Caregiver) Akron Ohio
We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.

The Dr’ Guide books were a great door opener and relationship builder with the allergy medical team. Our reps loved them.
Alex (Product Manager), New Jersey.
We had the highest BRC (business Reply Card) return rate of all time – it built up great customer goodwill and easier repeat calls.
Joe (Sales Manager) Pennsylvania
The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
