My mother is 92 years old. It seems all of a sudden she started to decline. She eats very little and drinks very little. She says she is tired all the time. After a couple of bits or a few sips of something she says she is full and doesn't want anymore. She is bed bound.
We mainly get her to drink hot cocoa. Once in a while she will sip a couple of spoonful's of broth and maybe a bite or two of melted ice cream. She drinks very little water.
I've read posts from others talking about this situation, but have not seen many answers from those of you who have experienced this. I'd like to know how long it took for your loved one to pass after they stopped eating. One hospice nurse told me some elderly folks can go on forever like this. Doesn't seem like they would be able to.
