Mom is no different than the other residents of her nursing home – eating takes a long time. On a number of occasions, I have seen her trying to eat all her food with a knife, but most of the time she uses the correct utensils – its just that moving food from plate to mouth is a laborious and time consuming task. Notice, however, that her plate is empty – even if her body needs a little appetite stimulant to do it. On the day I took this video, I arrived at 11:40 am, just after she was served lunch. It took her over an hour to eat.
Eat, sleep, and sit in the front lobby – that’s about the extent of her day.
