Talk to the staff. Am sure that they are doing everything they can. Weight loss is worrying.It is now eight months since oh went into care home.She readily went in without any problems but has deteriorated ...no longer talks very much and she had a fall middle of December 2015 and fractured her hip which resulted a stay in hospital for seven days. Her walking is not very good even with the help of the very caring staff in the care home. Also over the time she has been in the home she has lost a considerable amount of weight although the staff do the best to try to get her to eat at all meals. I wonder if this is a phase other patients go through? I still visit nearly every day but I am not sure wether she recognises me or not but as long as I get a smile and a kiss or two I feel very happy
