Dad suffered a stroke on May 1st. He's 95 and has dementia. I noticed he choked on his liquids in the hospital, but they continued to give them to him, but they had him on a chopped diet. At rehab, they put Thick It in his beverages and continue with the chopped diet. Had a modified barium swallow test done today at the hospital and the speech therapist told me that it will probably be this way the rest of his life. She gave me some recommendations on what to drink like V8 Juice, Naked Juice, etc. He's been refusing to drink water and anything with Thick It in it, therefore he was dehydrated and they had to give him an IV to rehydrate him. He's coming home on Tuesday and will have a live in aide. Suggestions on what to give him to eat would be appreciated. I was thinking maybe chunky soup, with most of the juice removed and the meat and veggies cut up may be an option. The hard part is his diet was awful before the stroke. He existed on Nestle Crunch Bars and tuna salad sandwiches for dinner. I know dad can't be the only one with this problem after a stroke. Like I said, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!
