Hi, This is my first "community" or blog to be a part of. My Husband was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I have been kind of frustrated trying to find a support group up here in Chico Ca.area. If I interpret the "stages" properly he is at about stage 4-5, leaning it to stage 5. Now that we have sat with the truth for about 3 weeks we are settling into acceptance. God bless my husband, he has a wonderful sense of humor about it most of the time. Feeding him a healthy, well balanced diet is a challenge, his idea of vegetables are french fries and onion rings. I am able to get him to eat some green veggies if I grill them on the BBQ. I am very interested in starting him on Coconut Oil, I don't know what his primary physician will say about it because he does have high triglycerides to begin with.View Thread
I will talk to Tony about the coffee, He doesn't like hot stuff in the summer and he doesn't like iced coffee. He is on Aricept 20 mg/day and is starting the Namenda next week. His primary Dr had put him on Aricept 10 mg about a year ago, but she didn't give him any diagnosis except forgetfulness at that time. His progression in the last year is pretty scary.View Thread
Thanks for the Info, I have e-mailed the Chico contact person but I have not called as yet. We gave up real coffee years ago but he might enjoy some real coffee instead, its worth a try. I will try some of your Veggie ideas as well as look for the book with sneaky recipes.
Does anyone have ideas how I can sneak the 2-3 Tbs of coconut oil into his food without heating it to much. I tried it in my iced coffee this afternoon and I am presently eating it with a spoon. Not bad, but my Husband is already suffering from "Contempt prior to Investigation."View Thread
