My mother has lewy dementia and we are having a hard time getting her to eat and drink.
HI MY MOTHER HAS LEWY DEMENTIA AND IT IS A BATTLE TO GET HER TO DRINK WATER OR ANY FLUIDS AND EATING IS BECOMING A BIG PROBLEM. SHE THINKS THERE ARE THINGS IN HER FOOD AND IF SHE TAKES A COUPLE SIPS OF LIQUIDS SHE FEELS FULL SHE SAYS. IF WE WERE TO GIVEV HER SODA JUNK FOOD AND SUGAR SHE WOULD EAT THAT I'M SURE, GETTING HER TO EAT HEALTHY IS AN ISSUE. SHE DOES NOT EVEN DRINK 8 OZ OF WATER A DAY, IT IS A STRUGGLE TO GET HER TO EAT OR DRINK. SHE IS ON MEDICINE FOR THE DEMENTIA, ALSO SHE HAS LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS BECAUSE OF THIS WHAT CAN WE DO
