How To Assist A Client With Alzheimer's Disease With Eating At The Following Stage; Mild, Moderate And Severe?

Answer

Hi Adela

Peopple with Alzheimer's are the same as anyone else. If you offer them good food that they enjoy it will help keep them as healthy as possible. Diet only has to change if there are co-existing diseases or they have problems swallowing. There are a few links to shareposts that I think will help answer your wide ranging question.
