Hi all, hope everyone is well, quick question, my Mum often forgets to swallow saliva these days, this combined with poor lip seal closure is often resulting in quite excessive dribbling (for want of a better word). Not only does this mean following her around with a tissue and clothes getting dirty very quickly, the other day i was out pushing mum along the beach and a (much older but cognitively bright old lady) saying to me "it's a shame isn't it?" looking at mum, (i replied "yes it is windy isn't it?" and walked on). Point being, i know mum would have hated people looking at her dribbling...so... any ideas? i know at work we have patches for some of the kids which goes on their neck and helps reduce saliva, but as i think it is a forgetting to swallow rather than a producing too much saliva issue i'm not sure if these would be suitable? Does anyone have any experience of these (or anything else) being used with people with dementia? all thoughts massively appreciated Suzanna PS: mum just looked at me in a rare moment of vague clarity and said "i don't know you do i?" me - "well actually you gave birth to me about 23 years ago...." mum - *look of bewilderment and a vague laugh*.... oh dear!
