Mom has been doing a lot of pocketing of her food lately, then spitting it out. We serve her soft food -- fish, mashed potatoes, spaghetti, mac n cheese, etc... She doesn't have a large quantity of food on her plate, but she shovels it in her. We try to tell her to slow down, but that doesn't last long. She chews a long time. This seems to go on at dinner time. Today, she finished eating, but I knew she has some in her cheek. Ten minutes later, she spit it out. It was chewed up. She has not choked on food, thank goodness, but she does choke on liquid, mainly water. (She will not drink it with Thick-it). Does anyone have experience with this? Is this a frontotemporal dementia symptom? What can I expect?
