Food things...

...wow, Mom will now eat any quantities of food I put in front of her, preferably sweet things. In reading about other's and their experiences with dementia, sweet things rule.

Problem that I've started to see now is swallowing; Mom will eat, chew, get another bite, chew some more, get another bite, chew some more, until she's got cheeks like a chipmunk, I have to 'remind' her to swallow; same with the morning meds, she'll put them in her mouth (after I get them ready and hand them to her along with the water, she won't want to take the water, and when she does, I have to remind her to swallow it. Strangest thing!
