Care Homes

Med-Easy™ Liquid Swallowing Aid provides a new option for care and nursing home teams to help patients who are struggling to swallow their solid dose medication. Care and nursing home residents can often experience difficulties swallowing solid dose medication for a number of reasons. This could be due to a medical condition or illness, as a side effect from current medication or due to a general aversion to swallowing tablets and capsules.

Using Med-Easy™ Liquid Swallowing Aid will ensure that medication is being released correctly, helping to avoid the non-compliance of treatment and the potential added process of covert administration for care and nursing home teams.

How it works

Med-Easy™ Liquid Swallowing Aid eases the passage of medicines through the
oesophagus into the stomach, making swallowing
medication a much easier and more pleasant experience. With
a light texture and a sweet cherry flavour, it covers up the
bad taste of medicines and has no medicinal after taste.

Swallowing Difficulties

If care and nursing home residents have difficulty swallowing their solid dose medication they may resort to chewing, crushing or splitting their tablets and capsules or use food and beverages to aid the intake of their medication. These practices are not recommended and risk the medication not being released correctly.

If necessary, carers may also be required to assist in these practices, which is known as covert administration. This can result in non-compliance of treatment, additional paperwork and potential serious legal ramifications.
