Feeding your grandmother: I worked briefly at a convalescent home as a dinner cook. I would take cooked beef and cut it up, then place it into a blender. I would basically end up with a meat shake. The consistency was that of a milk shake. I would do the same with pork and boned chicken as well. I also took such vegetables as brussels sprouts and canned corn and did the same thing with a blender. There is always applesauce and puddings. You might try Yogurt as well. Something else you might check into is soy. This was for people that had a hard time swallowing or chewing. It may help your grandmother as well. Good luck. Beamer23

I have just very recently started to entertain the idea of going more vegetarian. I am afraid what is going on with your grandmother is way beyond what help I can offer. I'll be praying for you. Beamer23
