Medical Conditions That Cause Swallowing Problems

Post stroke

Stroke recovery can be a difficult process. Ensuring you or your loved one is eating enough and getting the right nutrition is vital for getting, or staying, healthy.

Cancer

Several kinds of cancer, as well as some treatments for cancer, can make it difficult to eat, or may put you off food altogether. Knowing what to eat and how to prepare it can help.

Dementia

Dysphagia is a major concern for dementia sufferers and their loved ones. Being prepared for the possibility of food refusal can help to combat malnutrition.

Parkinson's disease

Parkinson’s disease can lead to chewing or swallowing difficulties as the condition progresses. Ensuring a person living with Parkinson’s has a good diet can help to keep them healthy.
