just a little introduction and brief explanation of our situation
We are caring for our neighbour, he is an elderly gentleman of 82 years young and he was diagnosed with Parkinson's approx 3 years ago.
When his wife passed away a few months after he was diagnosed we took on the responsibility of caring for him, as he has no family.
Over the past couple of years we have seen a steady decline in his health and we are doing more and more for him. My dad accompanies him to GP and hospital appointments, we makes sure he has all his medications to hand, we do his shopping and cook his meals and we pop in to see him in the morning, afternoon and evening.
At the moment he is tending to his own personal cares unaided and he is managing to eat his food well.
Just a couple of question
He is finding that his mouth is constantly dry which is annoying him terribly. When my dad took our neighbour to the GP he mentioned it and the DR gave him a spray to which my neighbour has described as useless (he is quite the character)
Has anyone got any suggestions to improve the dryness in his mouth?
Are their foods he should be avoiding?
Many thanks in advance for any help
