Making Holiday Meal Safer for those with Swallowing Difficulties

Many persons who have dementia, especially those in the latter stages, have difficulty swallowing certain kinds of foods.  They often need a modified diet, and many actually be forced to refrain from some of their favorite foods.  The holidays can be especially troubling for these people and their caregivers, as they may not be able to understand why everyone else is enjoying a big plate of turkey and all the fixings, and they are stuck with two or three globs of pureed mess.
