My dad has dementia and we have been battling him not eating for months. After being in the hospital, the doctors did all the usual tests to make sure there were no physical reasons he wasn't eating. After being cleared of those tests, we established it was his dementia. They sent him home with some added prescriptions to help with his eating and depression. One prescription is medical marijuana which has been working better with his eating but the cost is super expensive. Medicare does not pay for it and it costs us nearly $500 dollars a month for it. Plus he seems to have weird hallucinations with it. I would just like to know if there is another alternative that is not so damn expensive and without the side affects.
