Totally understand my MIL doesn't recognize food now. We have to spoon feed her and make her drink. She doesn't recognize the drinking cup either. My husband is Brilliant the way he manages to get her to eat. She's become childlike and needs to be distracted either by telling her a story or just when speaking to her. It is sad. She can't hold cutlery or even hold a food item in her hand .Have noticed a new development , Mum has been slow at eating for a fair while now and eats what is directly in front of her so that’s all the meat , fish then potatoes and veg as the plate emptied but now she looks at the food as though it’s an alien object , not sure if it’s the using of knife and fork. She seems to struggle to cut food as though she has no strength in her hands .She looks at me and copies me at the table but if she sits in her chair and eats (occasionally) she takes so much longer , it’s quite painful to see .
