Swallowing Problems?
As a person gets throat or larynx problems changes in swallowing occur. Swallowing itself is more difficult. Closing the trachea (by means of the epiglottis) at the right time is no longer possible. Liquids enter too quickly for the responsiveness, as it were. As a result, people choke more quickly when drinking.
Solution Chewing Problems
Chewing food is slower and more difficult due to a reduction in force in the chewing muscles. Coordinating all movements becomes more difficult. In addition, problems with the teeth can make chewing more difficult. Leftovers are also no longer swallowed properly and automatically, so that someone can choke more quickly.
Malnutrition
Malnutrition is a known phenomenon by 1 in 4 older seniors. It leads to muscle and body weight declining, resulting in a reduced resistance.

IDDSI Framework
The IDDSI Framework provides a common terminology to describe food textures and drink thickness.
It consists of a continuum of 8 levels (0 - 7), where drinks are measured from Levels 0 – 4, while foods are measured from Levels 3 – 7.
