My mum was admitted to hospital 2 weeks ago with an infection. This is the second time in 6 weeks. The difference this time being that mum hasn't been eating for pretty much the whole 2 weeks except for a couple of sips of soup and some Ensure, and drinking very little. For the first week and a half, she was on a drip and taking Ensure, but now she is medically fit she will not eat anything still and still drinking minimal amounts. Even though mum is medically fit to leave hospital, the managers from her old care home have said that she cannot come back to the care home as they feel they cannot meet mums needs, and recommend that she goes to a Nursing home. This has caused considerable stress for the whole family, as mum can leave hospital but she has nowhere to go. Social Services are involved, and I am hoping that the sooner mum gets out of hospital, the sooner she picks up the habits of eating again . Does anyone have any advice about how to get mum to eat again?
