Thanks for your ultra-prompt reply.
I am hesitant to not provide all the cutlery--my problem is not helped by the fact that my partner(civil) is in TOTAL DENIAL that she has anything wrong and has been thus for two and a half yearsHi @Genie of the lamp and a warm welcome to Dementia Talking Point. I am so glad you are finding it useful.
I'm sure someone who has encountered this problem will be along shortly. My mum is in a home and sue to covid restrictions I haven't seen her eat for a while, but I know my mother in law got very confused by cutlery when she was still at home and started using it very awkwardly. I usually eat with just a fork in my right hand. Do you think your person with dementia might manage with just a fork rather than a knife to eat with if they are fining both hands confusing. Finger food is also an option.

you can get them on a well known internet siteI have a couple of ‘sporks’, they look like a spoon with fork tines, I found them when I cleared out my Mum’s house so I don’t know where they came from, but they are very useful with sloppier food as my OH refuses to use a spoon and his cutlery skills are poor. He also will try and ‘spoon’ up food with his knife.
