Mum having eating problems or getting mixed up? Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar to this. My mum has alzheimers- she was diagnosed about eight years ago. She also has depression and sever anxiety disorder along with a number of other physical illnesses. She is currently in a secure hospital ward for elderly and mental health and has been there for three weeks. Before she went in she was saying that the thought of eating was making her feel sick but was still eating dinner and also some treats. Now she is in hospital she has been saying to us that she is unable to eat and when she does she has severe pain in her stomach. If she eats in front of me or my dad she always appears to be in a lot of pain straight after. She says that because of this she is only managing to eat tiny amounts but doesn't feel hungry. She says she has told the nurses but they say she hasn't and that she never appears to be in pain. I went to speak to one of the head nurses last night and they said that she has been eating full meals every day- sometimes three courses. I am concerned because my mum is not they type of person to ever lie. I'm also concerned as there are two people of the same name on the ward- my mum and someone else- and their medication got mixed up twice last week. This means I'm not sure I trust the nursing staff! I am not sure what to do or think or say at all! and I have no idea how to help my mum has anyone experienced anything like this before?
