Yes. You can add fiber to her soft diet in the form of a power that is added to water. There are many brand names of fiber available and all of them work well.

The other thing you can do is consult with a dietitian. There may be one available at your local senior center or hospital.

Does this make sense to you?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.
