If you want to hear a resounding ‘YES,’ ask my husband or anyone in his residential group if they’d like some ice cream. I believe that it has magical properties. Everyone sits up with increased interest but ice cream cones are baffling. Ice cream is not ‘finger food’ and holding it one’s hand and licking just doesn’t seem to make sense.
My loved one has forgotten how to feed himself although he still has an appetite. I just learned how by watching the caring staff. The prompt is “READY?” He’s trained to this command and it works every time. No longer do we have favorite foods except for any flavor of ice cream!
And rarely is there a signal that he’s full, he’ll say “it’s for you!”
