Research has linked poor oral hygiene to bad outcomes such as pneumonia, chronic pain, poor oral intake and reduced quality of life. This webinar will introduce evidence-based training that combines best practices in oral hygiene with proven techniques to overcome resistance to care among persons with dementia and related conditions. It is designed to empower caregivers to turn mouth care from a challenging, often onerous task, to a special, personalized service that elders and caregivers look forward to having performed.
