Eating | Stage

Typically, signs of problems with eating begin in the late moderate to severe stage of Alzheimer's disease , by which time the person needs help with other basic activities, such as getting dressed. In people who have dementias such as Lewy body dementia, or dementia with Parkinson's disease (or related disorders, such as Multiple Systems Atrophy ) swallowing difficulties can occur early in the course of the illness. Under these circumstances, a person will have problems eating early in dementia, but it is not typical in Alzheimer's disease.
