I did this with my grandmother also but the I Don’t Need Therapy I Just Need To Play Volleyball Shirt was when my daughter came my grandmother didn’t recognize me anymore and so she didn’t understand who my daughter was. Alzheimer’s disease is horrible and heartbreaking! I hope someday they find a cure! It really broke my heart to watch my grandmother forget how to eat or even swallow. She starved for 9 days before she died and I couldn’t even recognize her anymore on that final day. I’m a speech pathologist, and one of the areas that our profession specializes in is swallowing disorders. As dementia progresses, our bodies begin to shut down, and towards the end, our digestive systems begin to slow down significantly. With this, appetite drops significantly and many stop eating because they no longer feel hungry.

I don’t mean, in any way, to discount how terrible this is to witness as a loved one. The only reason I bring I Don’t Need Therapy I Just Need To Play Volleyball Shirt up is I hope to put at ease distress in loved ones feeling that their person suffered the “starvation pains” that we associate with not eating. Thankfully , they don’t. I do often recommend providing our loved ones with dementia foods that they love, whether it’s a sweet treat or grilled cheese. Taste sensation often becomes dampened so very flavorful foods–often sweet, sour, salty–are hits during meals or snacks.
