    Medication administration can often become a point of contention with aging parents or others. One of the reasons may be that they maybe are difficult to swallow. Offer medications with pudding, applesauce or a nutritional supplement such as Ensure because water is not the best liquid to use for this. Basically something with a little smooth texture to it will work much better.
