By definition, dysphagia is a medical term for the inability to swallow.  It’s a major symptom associated with health conditions such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.  Dysphagia can strike anyone at any age but it’s more common among seniors with comorbid conditions.  The major types include esophageal dysphagia, oropharyngeal dysphagia and neurogenic dysphagia.  Patients experience pain and gagging while swallowing, frequent heartburn, and drooling, among other symptoms.  Unsure how to help your elderly loved one?  A-1 Home Care in Yorba Linda will provide a highly skilled home care assistance seven days a week.
