I mean you can lead a horse to water - all you can do is take in stuff you think she may eat if that's what she's eating. But the home really must try to ascertain how much she is eating, I think - even if it means checking on her more often which may annoy her. And obviously keeping an eye on her weight which it sounds like they are.Thanks @DianeW @imthedaughter xx
It sounds like mum is refusing to even try to eat most meals now and is mainly just eating the things I take in. They don’t know exactly how much of those things she is eating cos they say its hard to monitor as she keeps them in her room and is very possessive and private and doesn’t like staff to look through her things, but they see her walking about eating the chocolate bars and things at times.
Thanks x next visit tomorrow. When my sister spoke to home mid week mum was still down, and still wasn't eating much. They said they watch mum and if she's not eaten or not had much they try take her for a cup of tea and couple of biscuits after so she'll at least gets something. Her weight is still same and GP is keeping monitoring her bloods to keep eye out for anything there.I hope you have managed some better visits @annielou , so you don't need to worry quite so much. I think it's true what others say, your mum will have "up and down" times, it will never be good all the time. Hopefully you can talk to staff and get a clearer picture. Sending hugs xx
