Holidays and Swallowing Difficulties

Just because your loved one may have difficulty swallowing, doesn’t mean that she shouldn’t be able to enjoy the holiday meals just as much as everyone else.  Often, those with dysphagia feel removed from the dinner table and a little embarrassed because their meals look different.
