Oral Care & Dementia has their own challenges and rewards.
Oral care for people living with dementia presents unique challenges to their care partners. Imagine arranging for a dental house call because Mom's breath is horrible, only to discover she has dentures! This is just one of many fascinating stories today's guest, Dr. Joy V. Poskozim, shares with us. We discussed many practical tips for assisting our loved ones in oral care, dental appointments, and more.
There’s an old saying about the eyes being windows to the soul. But the latest medical and dental research shows that the mouth truly is a window into one’s overall health. Looking out for a loved one’s health means keeping an eye on their nutritional intake, physical capabilities, and teeth and gums.
