My mother is 86 and in the late stages of cerebeller ataxia. (Atrophy of the cerebellum) She has been unable to walk for over 3 years and began having visual and audio hallucinations about 2 years ago. Over the last year or so, she has been seeing ants, fleas and bugs in her bed.
Lately she sees bugs in all her food. It is so bad that she struggles to eat anything and chokes from eating too fast before the bugs eat it all. Her neurologist is most unhelpful and would not tell me anything about what to expect. She has been taking Clonozepam and Buspirone for year to mask some of the symptoms of loss of motor control.
I am running out of ideas about how to get her to eat and would appreciate any educated advice. Here are some videos from about 3 months ago.
