    Struggling to get mother to eat or drink anything these days.
    After she eats few small bits of lettuce, she says that she is full-up.
    Mother, is just a bag of skin and bones, nowadays.
    Really very worried if she gets any sort of virus etc, it could be the end for her.
    Any help?

    Hi Joe 90
    You must be so worried about her!
    I have no experience of this - just to say that there are threads on similar situations, so do have a mooch around TP.
    Are you able to speak to her GP or SS?

    Hi Joe 90,

    Speak to the GP and he will probably prescribe Fortisips which is a flavoured milkshake (they also do a juice) with all the essential vitamins and minerals.

    My aunty has them as she is very underweight and hardly eats anything but she drinks these no problem.
