Following earlier thread, She has not eaten for a couple of weeks while in hospital following her collapse at home. She has dipped dramatically with her dementia since entering hospital . I can get her to sip water a little but she does not appear able to chew and her swallowing is very difficult. I find it difficult to accept its her choice not to eat which is what the ward sister is telling me. She can just manage a spoon of icecream and at most has two - three teaspoons spoonfuls of this during day at most. Her weight is falling off and she looks very gaunt to say the least. Is anyone else experiencing similar and I wonder why staff are saying she is eating a little when clearly witnessed by all my family she is not. I am finding it distressing to say the least .
