My Dad has vascular dementia on top of a previous traumatic brain injury. Over the last few months he is having increasing problems with swallowing. Sometimes he's in too much of a hurry and swallows before the food is properly chewed. Other times he keeps adding in more food then choking as he tries to swallow too much at once. We've tried to slow him down, give smaller portions, softer food etc - sometimes that works, sometimes not. We also try to be relaxed at meals and not make him anxious about it, but am concerned if this problem progresses. I have been recommended perhaps talking to a speech and language therapist? Anyone got experience of swallowing problems in the person they look after? Any tips or advice gratefully received!
