Following my Dads recent death we have had to move my Mum into a care home. They both lived with us for 12 years and my Dad was her main carer. She does not understand that my Dad has died and asks for him a lot, we have resorted to telling her he is at work, which settles her. She has settled really well into the care home and they are brilliant with her, there is lots going on and she seems very happy. In the last few weeks she has suddenly started to fall asleep without any warning, it is then really difficult to rouse her, she has also started to store food in her mouth, chewing it for ages then wanting to spit it out or sometimes she heaves and is sick. We are not sure if this is a progression of her Alzheimer's or something else. I wondered if anyone had come across these behaviours also.
