Maintaining good nutrition and positive eating habits while navigating through the stages of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias can be a struggle. Caregivers may face a number of challenges, including loss of appetite, loss of taste, and changing food preferences as well as the possible need to integrate special diets when necessary.
