Grandma loved a bagel and lox. It was her absolute favorite food. As her Alzheimer's disease progressed there were very few things that made her happy.
One of the ways that I connected with her was to always get her a bagel and lox. Sometimes, the staff at the nursing home were "concerned" about the sodium content. Too much salt is not good for the kidneys.
BUT at the age of 95, with advanced Alzheimer's disease, my mom and I felt it was more important for grandma to have some joy.
What is your loved ones' favorite food? Get it for them!
Don't you agree?
