Mealtime support

The Mealtime Support Resources are a series of information sheets with practical information on good mealtime support for people with a disability who may need some assistance at mealtimes.  They provide brief information on topics such as signs of swallowing difficulties, choking, food textures, support strategies, positioning, specialised cutlery , plates, cups etc and related topics about oral health, nutrition and examples of templates to capture information.  If you suspect someone has a swallowing difficulty always seek specialist assessment and advice. These resources can provide background information to assist in enjoyable mealtimes for everyone.
