The Foundation for Quality Care was awarded a grant from the New York State Health Foundation to provide the Mouth Care Without a Battle: Improving Oral Health Care for Older Adults in Nursing Homes Project to 24 Nursing Homes in New York State.  The Mouth Care Without a Battle Program brought together various organizations including University of North Carolina founders of the Mouth Care Without a Battle Program and the New York Dental Hygienist Association (NYDHA) to assure the successful implementation of the program.

This project helps improve daily oral health care and the quality of life for our nursing home residents. The project provided on-site and remote education, as well as Coaching to Nurses and CNAs on techniques and barriers to good oral care.
