Ageing can lead to physical changes, often compromising the swallowing function in elders and causing stress for their carers. With this in mind, Jockey Club “age at home” is organising an exhibition “Eating Made Easy with Gerontech” to help people understand more about dysphagia.
The exhibition will explain dysphagia from a medical perspective and introduce soft diets. We will also showcase gerontech equipment/devices for dysphagia rehabilitation. Jockey Club “age at home” works with different organisations to curate workshops for people to understand dysphagia through first-hand experience. Simple dysphagia tests will also be offered to those in need with follow-up support.
Date: From now to mid-June
