My mother, 97 years old, has dementia. She has no sense of day or night and falls asleep at all times. She has lost a few teeth and has problems chewing her food. Everything I serve has to be very soft. The last few months she has been falling asleep a lot, even while she is eating. I have to keep waking her up, but it doesn't help. She chews at least 200 times (I counted) and still can't finish her meal after 2 hours because she keeps dozing off. When she falls asleep, she drools. It's like she doesn't know there is food in her mouth and forgets to swallow. I tried serving her meals right after she wakes up but it didn't help. She is now only eating half of what she used to. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions on how to get her to eat (other than supplementing her diet with Ensure). Thank you.
