My Mother has dementia and is in a nursing facility. For the past week she has been acting ten times worst and doesn't want to eat. She is also coughing every time she drinks or eats anything. (maybe ephagia. which the are going to check on) Can UTI cause these symptoms? It is a sudden decline. She was eating and acting ok for dementia around a week or so ago and then suddenly talking so much out of the realm.
Has anyone had anything like this?
