In the final years of my parents lives, they lived in an area where there were a number of retirement units. It was good for them b/c they met new people their own age, mixed w/ them, had a seniors club they went to & generally had a good time.

I remember one couple in particular they met & became good friends with. The husband had throat cancer a number of years earlier & due to surgery had permanently damaged his ability to taste anything. I remember my mother telling me how his wife asked him what he would like to eat & he would just say ..... it doesn’t matter I can’t taste anything anyway!

For this man eating was simply a matter of staying alive. Enjoyment was no longer a part of his dinning experience.
