My grandmother has stopped eating. Her recent hospital visit found nothing wrong physically. This is just her Alzheimers and dementia. She won’t eat or get dressed and calls for an aide every time she needs to get out of bed. This is not acceptable behavior in an assisted living facility. My mother has to hire a full-time aide or put her in a nursing home. The only thing surprising about any of this is my mother’s reaction. She just doesn’t hear me or anyone else telling her that things aren’t going to get better. She thinks more meds (antipsychotic, antidepressant, etc.) will bring back the college educated, self sufficient woman that she knew.
