Is she ill enough for hospice, they may be able to supply it. Can you get her to drink flavored milk mixed with whey powder. That is a cheaper way to give the nutrition. Can you also make something nutritious using a blender. Liquids at room temperature are often easier for older folks to drink.

A person who is low income should qualify for EBT support. I believe nutritional supplements can be purchased with that. Look into that benefit through your county.

If she is on Medicaid, her MD can order it. Talk to him and the caseworker.

I'm sorry I have no idea but I'll give you a giggle. A few years ago when I took my mother to the doc he said "You need some Boost". Being hard of hearing her response was "Booze? What kind of booze?", Still makes me chuckle.
