I'm coming back to add that I think supplementing the food that is available rather than providing completely different meals is more doable. And try to select foods that seem more normal when pureed like custards, puddings and yogurt - mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, rutabaga - refried beans - soups - smoothies - breakfast oatmeal or cream of wheat....
There are published lists, but I've reorganized my medical data collection and can't locate them right now. They might have been produced by a Dysphagia or Swallowing medical association. They were the most thorough and best I'd ever seen and were our guidelines.
This might help you with menus though:
Is your mother getting speech therapy, which would be typical for someone with dysphagia? My father got exercises, which did help him improve his swallowing muscles initially.
I would ask the speech therapist (a) for printed diets guidelines and (b) the speech therapists providing exercises (which she should be getting in a rehab facility).
