As it has been half term for my children this week, we were able to go and stay with my Mum for a few days. The aim of our visit, aside from giving her some company, was to continue trying to clean up and tidy her house. Despite all of our best efforts, my Mum refuses to accept her diagnosis. She gets extremely aggresive and starts blaming everyone else for all of her current problems. She is not looking after herself very well and I am very concerned about her poor diet. My Mum stopped eating all red meat quite a long time ago but since she has been living alone she doesn't seem to bother cooking at all. Several years ago she was told that her cholesterol levels were a little high and was advised to restrict her intake of things like eggs and cheese. After having stayed with her for a few days I am deeply concerned that she is eating very little and what she does eat is not nutrionally good for her. Does anyone out there have any information of low/no fat diets having a detremental effect on a person mental capacity? How do I get her to cook and eat more healthily when I cannot be there each day to cook her meals and eat with her? I place internet orders for her grocery shopping that are delivered to her home but unless I am there to cook and eat a meal with her, next time I am there I find food rotting in the fridge. It took my husband and I the best part of two days to clean her kitchen!!! Her continued refusal to even consider the posibility of anything being wrong with her makes it virtually impossible for us to discuss how she would like things to be further down the line. I am unable to get her to sort out anything, she insists that she will deal with all of this when things get worse. My concern is that if she gets much worse, she won't be capable of making these deciscions.
