I live with my dad as his full-time caregiver and try to fit in 3 healthy meals each day, but that's challenging since he doesn't get up until 10 or 11am due to the many nighttime trips to the bathroom because of his over-active water pipes (yes, he takes meds for it). I shoot for giving him a meal about every 4hrs, but with his inability to be physically active, it tends to make him constipated. He walks with a rolater and pedals on the recumbent exercise bike for 10 min about every other day, but mostly sits and reads and watches evening TV programs. He's quite good about drinking lots of water throughout the day -- he has a large designated mug -- but having meals so close together doesn't allow him the in-between-meals snacks that he so likes, like half an apple fritter with a small glass of milk, or crackers with cheese and grapes or apple slices. Add into the mix the fact that his appetite is just not what it used to be when he was an active farmer, and it creates quite a challenge for me. Can anyone else relate? Suggestions, please!
