Problems with eating are usually a late sign of most dementias, although there are exceptions, as noted in the description of the typical stage of dementia in which eating problems occur. Problems commonly begin with inability to manipulate utensils, especially a knife. As the dementia becomes severe, there can also be problems with swallowing.
