LO has a dental appt. next month and has declined a lot since the last visit. Hoping that his dentist has some suggestions for dental care. I can say that my husband will rinse his mouth out well several times in a row, and that gets out a lot of food. Brushing is limited and flossing impossible.
Last year I took him for an eye exam and he did OK. This year he couldn't name the letters or understand any of the other tests. The optometrist had seen him before and he was able to determine his visual acuity by using one of his pieces of equipment. The challenge with dementia is that the visual perception is grossly affected and there isn't a means of correcting that. It's the deterioration of the brain.
