Consuming Rotten Food
It’s upsetting to think that people with dementia may not understand the difference between safe foods and expired foods. This surprising sign of dementia includes eating things that aren’t food and rotten foods. Researchers believe this occurs because people with dementia forget what to do with the items in front of them. Although there are other explanations for eating items that aren’t food, if your loved one is experiencing this symptom along with others associated with dementia, it may be time to see your doctor. Your doctor can give your loved one the best explanation and determine the cause of their symptoms.
