Or not sure if Mum forgets shes eaten sometimes.... Mum with Alzheimers has put on a stone and a half above her normal weight in the last 18 months, and like most has developed a very sweet tooth. She has gone up a size and a half in clothes, but still trying to wear all her old clothes. When taking her clothes shopping, and trying to get her to buy a size bigger she says she isn't possibly that size. She has never been that size in her life. If you tell her its the make, and they have made it smaller or any such fib, No she won't accept it so she will buy smaller clothes. It doesn't work if I buy anything and cut the labels out Every time we go out she has to have lunch, or a scone and coffee, or an icecream. There is so much she can no long do to occupy her time apart from TV when she is at home, she eats. Her shopping trolley at Christmas was rediculous. 3/4 full of biscuits, cakes, puddings, chocolates, icecream. Her blood sugar levels remain good though I am glad she is eating, as at the time of her Alzheimers diagnosis she had bowel cancer surgery and wouldn't eat and lost a lot of weight. It's gone from one extreme to the other. What can I do here... If anything?
