Hi All, I am hoping for some advice on my next move. Mom narrowly avoided been hospitalised again yesterday due to dehydration. This would have been the third times this year. The first two times where during the hot summer. She lives on her own with carers going in three times a day. Mom will not drink and can be very stubborn resisting efforts to get her to take on fluids. In addition she isn’t eating,partly due to lack of appetite and partly due to gagging or “heaving” when eating.i totally get why she as problems. Her GP is aware of this and we are waiting for a prescription for high calorie shakes to arrive. I feel this isn’t sustainable on any level, and that her needs full time support. My next plan is to approach social services. I would be grateful for any wisdom.or experience with this stage.
