    Hi @Icandothis. I wish I could offer advise but all I do is give sympathy and a little empathy. as, aside from the hospital admittances, my dad is somewhat the same with the care, dehydration, and even exposing himself... well taking off all his clothes and incontinence pant.... and he doesn't always refuse his food.

    All my family and I can do - in 'progressing' his care - is to continue as we do and keep caring for him in the way we have done and to try to keep going as we have as he is getting the best care and food, it's just the pwd that is reacting differently. All the best.
