Why does my 91 yr. old father do the following?
My dad developed a certain behavior while eating, and I've never said anything to him about it because it's obviously just something he's doing because he's getting older. Whenever he eats, when he brings the fork/spoon to his mouth, he holds the fork/spoon up to his mouth for about a minute or two. He sorta puckers his lips at the same time and shakes a little. Then he puts the food in. Does anyone know what causes this? It has nothing to do with the food being too hot, because he does it with his cereal as well. Of course at his age, I've noticed quite a few changes over time. Thx.
