My dad has a history of health problems (diabetes, heart disorder, hypertension). He suffered a brain stroke in April this year that left him with right hemiparesis with loss of speech. From total flaccidity of his right limbs to gradual movement of muscles - he has witnessed improvement (though there is negligible improvement in his speech). He recently started refusing food and any treatment and gets stubborn and angry when we insist. We have tried cajoling, pleading and shouting but in vain. What makes it hard is he can't even tell us why he won't listen. We even took him to a psychiatrist to alleviate any depression he may have (after guidance from his doctor) but that has hardly made any difference. A friend suggested keeping him under the strict supervision of an old age home for 15-20 days that would build in some discipline. It is heart wrenching for us, seeing him like this, but all options have seem to have run out.. Does anyone feel for or against this?
