Oral health education is valuable for seniors, their caregivers, and for people with barriers to accessing traditional dental care services. Understanding the risks for neglecting your oral hygiene can put things into perspective. Seniors with poor oral health are in a higher risk-category for stroke, heart attack and aspiration pneumonia. This educational presentation outlines some insightful facts and helpful home dental care tips for seniors and people with disabilities. A big appreciation and shoutout to www.caregivingmatters.ca for facilitating this educational workshop.
