To Fight For Food And Life

The RoseCup Story - by Dr. Gawie Roux (Lifemere Managing Director)

I became the GP of this charming lady, Rose and her astute husband Louis at the turn of the century in a small village in rural Queensland, Australia. Indeed a colourful and most interesting couple. Salt of the earth they were...

Time swiftly passed. Louis was buried and Rose, at the age of 89yrs deteriorated with dementia. Soon she was cared for in the High Care Unit of a Rural Aged Care Facility (RACF). The main problem in the otherwise physically healthy Rose became dysphagia. She aspirated (breathed into her lungs) small amounts of liquid on several occasions and things became complicated. Despite insufficient food and fluid intake, Rose would clench her teeth when food was introduced through her lips. She would then blow fiercely spraying the room and the carers with liquid food.
