Mom has a terrible appetitie and she is getting weaker by the day. I've tried everything and she is withering away. I think she is giving up as she had told me and I hate to see her like this. I've threaten her with a feeding tube. In fact, she was in a nursing home and somewhat healthier. I promised her I would not put her back in a home but, she is not doing good at home at all. She did not want to die in a home because she feels her time is near. I told her I do not know what else to do for her and she replied by saying there is nothing left to do.
She is getting the best care possible and still I feel there is more that could be done. I've done some research on stimulating appetites but, she has to be willing to do this for herself.
