Mum normally doesn't eat enough to keep a sparrow alive, now she's telling me she's hungry all the time! When I come in from work there are always banana skins, empty biscuit packets, etc. Is this a symptom of Alzheimer's?

Hi there, my Mum doesn't stop eating, she loves food, especially cake. She will also forget that she's had something and will get another bar of chocolate to eat. Dare I say it, my Mum is now greedy.

Ha, my mum too. I always keep her favourites in stock although she has forgotten that she went off eggs in 1973.

She loves cream cakes too, crisps, chocolate, scones, I try to buy the things that she likes but I hate, it's not working well at the mo
