Posted @withregram • @alexandrahospitalsg “Smaller Bites to Swallow Right” is the first campaign in Singapore, initiated by AH’s Speech Therapists to help persons with dysphagia still be able to enjoy good old hawker fare. AH Speech Therapists shortlist and train willing hawkers to prepare their food with confidence (such as chop, cut, mince and blend), at no extra charge, so that the patients who are mostly seniors, can get to enjoy local hawker food safely. AH sees 3 in 10 seniors 60 years old and above, with swallowing difficulties.
 
Since September 2021, AH’s Speech Therapists have reached out to @hawkersofavfc, @abc.hawkers and @meiling.hawkers. A warm shoutout to the hawkers who have agreed to be pioneers of this movement – thank you for your great, selfless support for our seniors in the community.

The theme for this year's Speech Therapy Week is connection.

As speech therapists, we connect everyday with clients, caregivers and co workers/peers to share our knowledge and grow as professionals!

We CONNECT FOR those who have swallowing or communication difficulties so that they can connect with life’s big and small moments. Moments like sharing a meal together, and communicating with loved ones. Covid showed us that we can and must connect even over distance. So what better way to commemorate our profession than to celebrate connection and connect with all our stakeholders including you.
