Help! Husband not eating enough. Giving Ensure but would like ideas on soft foods to feed so he gets enough calories.
He is 82, with Alzheimer's Disease...I have to feed him most of the time. I just bought a Ninja blender to prepare pureed foods. This is all new to me and do not know how to prepare the foods. I have been giving him sweet potatoes, scrambled eggs, mashed vegetables, pasta, etc. How much does a manhis age need to eat to remain healthy?He does notlike to drink water and his skin is very dry. I worry about dehydration. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. A year ago he was 25 lbs heavier. His current weight is just a little underweight and don't want him to lose any more.
