Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Nutrition Mobile App
Many people with Alzheimer’s have problems eating.
How does it work?
An individual might lose his or her appetite or the ability to evaluate if food is too hot or too cold. In addition, an individual might forget that he or she has eaten and ask you for another meal. The individual may be experiencing physical difficulties that are causing the changes in eating habits. Sores in the mouth, poor-fitting dentures, gum disease or dry mouth may make eating difficult. To ensure the individual with dementia is receiving the proper nutrition you must work to prevent eating and nutrition problems. Consult with the individual’s physician and/or dietitian for guidance. The tips in the Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Nutrition mobile app will help you keep them eating properly.
