Hi @Tomolly10 and welcome to TP. Lots of lovely people here. I think I read that the sense of taste changes for a person with Alzheimer’s. I must admit I have only seen Mum put sugar in her coffee 3 times since I first posted it on here. I think I was just so surprised at the time.My Husband of 59 yrs now has sugar in his tea and coffee. Also he always asks me if I want sugar and I have not had sugar in either ever.!!! Strange.
My 68 yr old husband has always had a very healthy lifestyle, and that included never taking sweet things. Now he loves anything sweet. A complete change of taste.Since Mum was formally diagnosed at the end of January I have kept a notebook with significant changes in her behaviour. In a weird way and despite reading about Alzheimer’s and a desire for sweet things this one just became poignant. I have never known Mum in 55+ years to put sugar in coffee or tea but in the cafe today she picked up a sugar packet and emptied into the mug, afterwards saying how nice the coffee was there.
Welcome to TP @sadWife11*. I hope you find lots of support on here as I have over the last 12 months plus.My 68 yr old husband has always had a very healthy lifestyle, and that included never taking sweet things. Now he loves anything sweet. A complete change of taste.
