My Dad used to love to eat just about everything. He is losing weight, is weaker and today had constipation so bad he went to the emergency clinic where they had to take painful and extraordinary measures to help him. He lives on his own but has agency help, close neighbors, friends who check on him and bring him food, and his niece in town (she's a nurse) His doctor gave him pills to enhance his appetite but it didn't work. I think moving him into an elder apartments where his friend lives would be good for him and might help his appetite. He is so stubborn and wants to remain at home. I'm the only child - Mom died 3 years ago. Up until a few months ago, Dad seemed okay (not great , but okay - he doesn't like the fact that my husband and me won't move there and he doesn't want to come out here to CA ) I feel hopeless and guilty about this at times, but do visit him every 3 months (a 2000 mile trip). ANy advice?
