Mom is 90, post stroke, vascular dementia, CHF. She had problems with swallowing but this has vastly improved with skilled speech therapy at the nh. Her old partial plate no longer fits. The facility dentist is recommending both upper and lower partials.
I'm think of just doing the upper, as she has never had a lower before. Mom occasionally asks about dentures, and just as occasionally says "no thank you". She's losing weight, is on a soft chopped diet.
Am I grasping at straws here, she has the funds to do this. I worry about the trauma of the fitting process and the fact that she's now on oxygen 24/7. All comments are welcome. Feel free to tell me I'm crazy!
