Oral Health Care for Seniors
Oral hygiene is closely connected to overall health. Poor dental health can cause or worsen other medical conditions, such as diabetes. To create greater awareness of the importance of oral care among seniors, FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest has organized several Interactive Dental Sessions in the Woburn community:
- New Horizons at Choate – September 5, 2019
- Woburn Senior Center – January 23, 2019
- Woburn Senior Center – July 17, 2018
Shalini Lahoty, Public Health Dental Hygienist (PHDH), educated seniors on the importance of oral hygiene, shared tips and techniques to improve oral health, and answered questions from the engaged audience. Topics included:
- Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)
- Denture Care
As co-owner of FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest, Shalini is passionate about ensuring that all our clients – especially the elderly – keep good dental health to improve their overall well being.
And it starts with training the caregivers… Shalini developed and added a unique Dental Care module in our standard caregiver training program to empower all our aides to effectively guide clients to improve their dental health.
