I believe my client is anorexic. She is 88 years old and refuses to eat. She says she doesn't want to get fat. In the last two years she has gone from 98 to 85 pounds. She has gotten so weak she has been hospitalized twice. She only takes in around 600 calories a day and most of them are empty calories. She refuses protein. I am at my wit
The doctors give her potassium and hemoglobin. But they are not talking to her about the need to eat. Should I be trying to get her counseling or should I just do the best I can? I feel like the people around her just think she is too old to help.
