  1. Great Info. Well presented. Simple steps, yet informative. Too often, oral care is not maintained, which is a missed opportunity that impacts negatively, for all the reasons you mention. Bravo!

  2. Fabulous informative video - sensitive to the needs, dignity, and present orientation of the Person and provides ways to approach oral care from a person centered perspective - and gives the caregiver foundation of understanding from which to draw from, as opposed to becoming frustrated and tabling for another day. The point about when to do it - even at non-ordinary times and in non-ordinary places like at a kitchen table or when the person is ready vs the time of day - is something that is not always thought about or brought out. This is a wonderful informative video made with true care for all involved.
