Oral Health for Adults
Good oral health helps us all to smile, eat, speak and socialise. To help everyone to benefit from good oral health and avoid distressing mouth pain, NICE Guidance about oral health for care home residents is being embedded into care home contracts across Devon. This slide pack, which was presented at the PEN Reference Group meeting , is designed to help to familiarise care home managers with their responsibilities towards care home residents’ oral health. The information sheet contains links to useful resources and organisations which may help care home managers to meet the recommendations in NICE Guidance 48.
