There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

mom's got to have her protein

We just finished supper. It is so hard to get mom to eat. But remember seniors need protein. I fed her instant oatmeal with peanut butter. It is good I have tried it. You make the oatmeal according to the directions than add a spoonful of peanut butter. She loves anything sweet so I made brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal. Protein helps keep the skin from breaking done. I am not going to let mom get any pressure sores.
Pressure sores are from sitting or laying on the same spot to long. So you got to keep her moving.And don't forget the protein. I use lots of beans . Any kind of beans has protein. She has no teeth anymore so it is soft food for her. If you want you can get baby food. But that can cost a lot of money. The blender does a great job on meat. But I am lazy and beans ,peanut butter and cheese is cheaper. Mac and cheese is one of moms favorites. Don't forget the eggs. They are all protein I think. Some days mom gets eggs three times a day. I also give her milk when I can't afford nutrition drinks. Can't beat milk products and eggs. Yogurt also helps with diaper rash. The live cultures kill the bacteria on the bottom. Now if I could only get her to eat her veggies.
