Wow, thank you! How is your wife doing with the pills?
Not too bad. She has developed a fairly reliable system to take her daily pills, though I can tell it still bothers her when she can't get one down faster. I think it is something that will continue to get easier over time.
Great ideas and great answer. Not only can you simply "imagine" that it is a mouthful of food, you can actually start to chew a bit of bread or something, then put the pill into the mouth and swallow them both together.

WOW thanks so much. My daughter lives in group home and chokes daily.I don't know if they know about this but I will buy several for them. One for my daughter.
With a semi-full mouthfull of water, place a tablet into mouth and tilt tour head backwards to swallow a tablet/pill.
Capsules float, so tilt your head forward and allow the capsule to float to the back of mouth before swallowing. This may help some.
