Hello everyone I am new to the site and wondering if any one had any advice on feeding. I am spending at least an hour feeding mum breakfast, and an hour and a half each for lunch and dinner. Mum's dinner for instance is only a large childs portion yet it takes an hour and a half to feed her. Maybe this is normal, but 4 hours a day just on feeding does seem rather a lot. The main reason for my concern is that I am hoping to get some respite care soon, but I am so worried that mum won't have enough to eat as I'm sure the care staff aren't able to dedicate this much time to feeding, or are they? We live just outside the area where my family live so respite could be an hour or more away, so I am even considering paying for respite in my families area just so my sister can go and feed every night. Any advice would be appreciated.
