I have cared for Mum for 3 years, in her own home ( moved in with her when Dad passed away) her dementia hasn't been too bad. She had a fall broke and broke her hip five weeks ago and now is going into decline rapidly. I go to hospital twice a day to try and make her eat, but she refuses !! They puried her food as she won't swallow, but if I manage to get 2 teaspoons down I'm doing well. Why won't she understand she must eat to get better so I can bring her home. It's breaking my heart to see her.
