  • Speech pathology care plans for each resident to ensure residents are swallowing safely, and fluid and food recommendations are tailored to meet their individual requirements.
  • Integrating with your multi-disciplinary team, to get to know residents, families, staff, your kitchen procedures and to understand how your facility works.
