Each day mom is taken to her choice of restaurant for lunch. Prevoiusly she would eat 5 nuggets and a few fries. Yesterday the caregiver said mom was still hungry. She actually ate 10 nuggets, a broccoli and cheese baked potatoe and a small fry. She ate it ALL. In the last week she has been starving. After eating at 7 am cereal, which has satisfied her previously, she is starved at 10 asking to go to Wendy's. When I arrive at 5 with dinner, it is all I can to do to keep mom from yanking things to eat. I purchased fiber bars and yogurt and requested that mom be given a snack at 10 and 3. When the caregiver arrived this morning, mom was at the table and had eaten 2 of the bars. Keep in mind she had just had cereal.
I googled this and found that this is a symptom of frontal lobe dementia.
Has anyone experience this and do you have a solution?
