My Mum came to live with us a few weeks ago, immediately after her diagnosis of Alzheimer's. She started on Donepezil on 4th July and her appetite has decreased rapidly. I've spoken to the memory team and they want to wait another week or so to see if there's any improvement. Meanwhile, all she will eat is sweet stuff - this has always been her favourite but she would eat the good stuff before a pudding. Now, it's ONLY cake, biscuits etc that she'll look at. The main trouble is that she's Type 2 diabetic Should I indulge her cravings - she's 90 after all, it's a bit off when she can't have what she wants. Yesterday she had a bowl of crunchy nut cornflakes for breakfast, two small slices of ginger cake for lunch and two Kipling's apple pies with double cream for tea If I hadn't given her these things, she would have gone without. I can see she's losing weight. Can anyone come up with ideas of what I can give her that may bridge the gap between something nourishing and the rubbish she wants to eat, please?
