If you're blending her food, she's obviously eating something. Do you mean she can't eat solid foods? If so, does she have dysphagia? And again, if so, is she being treated by a speech pathologist? If not, she should be.

If she has all her teeth and can chew easily, I'm thinking again that she might have dysphasia, unless she's had throat cancer and has compromised swallowing ability.

Let us know if dysphagia is involved; we've been through this and are currently working with a speech therapist. There are alternatives to blending, but it depends on the level of swallowing dysfunction.

Could you give us a little more information? Has your mother had a feeding tube? Do you mean she hasn't eaten solid food since 2009? Obviously she has been taking in nutrition, and it would help to know how.

What is it that you need help with? Are you now in charge of providing her nutrition?
