How do I help an incredibly proud and independent older woman?
I live with my 75 year old grandmother in my parent's house. We don't have a particularly warm relationship, so for the last four months or so we've led rather separate lives under the same roof.
But recently, I've begun to worry about her. She never eats. No matter what i make, or ask the cook to prepare, she makes some excuse and won't touch it. She made me get rid of the cook. And we lived on potatoes and rice for three weeks because that's all she remembers how to make. Secondly, of late, I've found faeces on the floor, and on appliances in the bathroom. I'm pretty sure she doesn't realise this is happening.
