I have 2 elderly female family members living with my family-they eat less each day I take them to the doctor every month-his response is try to keep food around and give them something at least 3-6 times a day. That's all well and fine but that leaves me little time for the rest of the members in our family(self/husband/teen/and 10 yr old) It gets frustrating at times and I guess I'm on this forum now just to vent and get others insight in to this. My siblings dont and wont help and TODAY i'm just OVERWHELMED i guess. Everything in our household evolves around them and normally its tolarable but today its hard i dont want them to get sick and yet i feel this is there way of just giving up, I know that in a home they wont try to get them to eat and today coaxing them to eat makes them Angry-so what should I do leave them to do as they wish just sleep and eat whenever? I feel like such a hard-ass making them eat, I dont want them to resent it but at the same time I dont want them to slowly deteriate, Is that what I'm afraid of I wonder,it makes me sad.
