This week’s guests are Lyndsay Parker and Morgan Mendenhall, a SLP + RDN sister duo! Together, they will cover what it means when our roles shift from rehabilitative to supportive, the pathophysiology behind what happens to our hunger and thirst drives at the end of life, the various forms of artificial nutrition and hydration, and the risks and benefits of IV fluids, appetite stimulants, and nutritional supplements at end of life.
