My husband who has Alzheimer's is having some trouble eating. His hand is shaking and that is very disturbing to him and me. He also says he is not hungry and does not eat all his meals, even though I have give him what he likes and less of it. Any suggestions?

Hello.

Have you discussed this with the doctor? There could be physical reasons why your husband has a lower appetite. Perhaps a medication he is taking has this as a side affect. So, my suggestion is to make sure to discuss all this with the doctor.

Hi,

Dave has given you good advice. The sooner he sees his doctor and finds out what's going on, the better.
