Featured Topic Thread: Client or loved one with dementia having difficulty swallowing pills?

Are you caring for a client or family member with dementia whose having trouble swallowing their pills? CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST FIRST and see if the pills can be crushed and mixed with food so that they are easier to swallow. Remember, some medications should not be crushed.
