My mom who has Parkinson's Disease is being what I call "weird". We do the sane routine day in and day out and she doesn't remember anything we do. I understand why and yet I don't. It's getting tough. I neec some ideas as to how to get her out of her shirts and into her pajamas. I try not to get upset about it but it can be frustrating.
Another issue is that she seems to have forgotten how to swallow. I have to blenderize everything because she can't remember how to chew either. Any ideas on how to remind her to swallow? Most of the time the food is drinkable and she has no trouble. But if it's blenderized to just be softened, she can't seem to swallow between spoonfuls. She has no logic or reasoning capabilities. That makes it even tougher.
Thanks y'all for any insight. Susan
