... or online. could you please help me with this quest
I dont know that they sell this kind of thing at a regular market. You might find them online-I'm not sure. There are products you can get through the pharmacy to add to liquids to thicken them. We used to use "Thick It" at nusing homes and assisted living facilities where I have worked. Talk to your speech therapist for resources of where to obtain this additive or these kinds of products. A speech therapist should know where to obtain these products as they are often the ones who recommend them based on swallowing tests.
We used thick it too. It can be found online or at some pharmacies, and others will order it for you. What consistancy do you need, because some liquids are thicker then others? Things like boost or ensure are thicker then water and some people find that consistancy ok, others need thicker.
If you like milk, a company in Tennessee has 8 oz containers of "Dairy Thick Milk" ready to drink. You buy a box of 26 containers free shipping. Hospitals use it for people with same concern. Foods: Buy Puree Foods from BlossomsFood.com or Puree Food-a.com. This is cheaper because it comes in small envelopes with powder you prepare in 30 seconds (no refrig). The previous one they ship in boxes (USPS) with an ice block and ready to heat in microwave. More $$ because shipping
