I'm just wondering if anyone is happy to share their experiences in time scales of decline in eating habits. Dad has been up and down with eating but now it seems the care home are helping him to eat and by what I can see a softish food diet, not liquidised but nothing too challenging. Getting through a meal of soup, dinner and dessert can take over an hour , but he is still finishing it off - when he is awake. What sort of timescales are typical between soft food intake, reduced appetite and finally not wanting any food ?. Once again, apologies if this seems out of place in EOL thread but some days he has just been asleep, hard to rouse, and he has had periods of very little fluid and food.
