Catering for dysphagia

Dysphagia is the medical term for swallowing difficulties. It affects up to 67% of care residents and specific support is needed to help sufferers to stay safe with their eating and drinking.* At Bidfood, we can provide a range of solutions to help you offer texture modified diets for your residents.
