Objectives: Recognize signs and situations where an older adult may need a modified diet. Choose an appropriate type of dietary modification. Practice ways to decrease risk of issues with chewing and swallowing.

Description: This class will educate caregivers on the needs of older adults with altered chewing/swallowing functionality, and how to modify meals for those that require diets needing a modified texture or thickened liquids. After reviewing the needs and reasons to why a modified diet is required, the caregiver will be able to identify these potential needs and be able to modify an individual’s meal to meet any modified solid or liquid texture needs.
