“We recognise the day-to-day challenges of both sufferers and carers and will continue to develop specialised products to assist dysphagia patients and carers of those within every age group and level of disability.”
Dr Gawie and Hannelie Roux have been working together in General Practice and Aged Care for nearly 20 years. Dr Gawie Roux is a Medical Doctor and Hannelie is a Registered Nurse.
The design, development and refinement of the RoseCup, the innovative attachments and NutriTaste thickened fluid food range, has been ongoing for 7 years.
The Roux’s care deeply about aged care and specifically about finding solutions for people with nutrition and swallowing difficulties.
Carer education is also important to the Lifemere team. By providing educational materials they aim to increase awareness and encourage professional diagnosis to assist those suffering from feeding and swallowing difficulties.
In 2016 Cornelia Opperman joined the Lifemere team in the Marketing and Administration role.
Lifemere continues to work closely with Speech Pathologists, Nutritionists, Carers and other professionals to provide safer swallowing solutions to support carers and those experiencing difficulties swallowing.
At Lifemere we embrace and celebrate the value of every life.
