Welcome to McCrite Plaza's Synchrony Dysphagia Solution program at Reflection Living! We understand that swallowing difficulties, also known as dysphagia, can significantly impact one's quality of life. That's why we have developed a comprehensive program that combines innovative technology, specialized therapy, and compassionate care to address the unique needs of individuals with dysphagia.
What is Dysphagia?
Dysphagia is a medical condition characterized by difficulty in swallowing. It can occur due to various reasons, including neurological disorders, stroke, muscle weakness, or structural abnormalities. People with dysphagia may experience pain, discomfort, choking, or aspiration during eating and drinking.
The Synchrony Dysphagia Solution Program
At McCrite Plaza, we are proud to offer the Synchrony Dysphagia Solution program, specially designed to help individuals with dysphagia regain their ability to swallow safely and comfortably. Our program focuses on a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating advanced technology, therapy strategies, and personalized care.
The Synchrony Dysphagia Solution program utilizes cutting-edge technology to assess swallowing difficulties and develop tailored treatment plans. We employ videofluoroscopic swallow studies (VFSS), a real-time X-ray procedure that allows us to visualize the swallowing process, identify any abnormalities, and guide therapy interventions effectively.
Our experienced team of speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and nutritionists work collaboratively to provide individualized therapy for each participant. Therapy techniques may include exercises to improve swallowing coordination and strength, sensory stimulation, modified diets, and adaptive strategies to enhance swallow function.
At Reflection Living, we believe in providing compassionate care tailored to each individual's needs. Our dedicated staff fosters a supportive environment, understanding the challenges faced by those with dysphagia. We strive to empower our residents and help them regain confidence and independence when it comes to their nutritional intake.
