Mom is losing weight but won’t eat.
My mom was just recently diagnosed with dementia and I have begun noticing that she does not eat often or eats very little. I have asked her several times if she was hungry, she would just say ‘no’. I can see that she is starting to lose weight, and I am getting more worried about her condition. We are new to this diagnosis and in having to be a caregiver so this is the biggest challenge for me right now. How can I get her to eat more? How can I know if she is truly not hungry? Thank you.
