Late last year, I told my Mom’s (82) Doctor that she still isn’t eating enough and losing more weight. She doesn’t do much but sit in her chair all day and watch TV and sleep. He suggested that she drinks Boost drinks. Much to my relief, she loves Boost and I was excited to find cases of 24 bottles at Sam’s club for $20 (sale price), but they’re back up to $25. I thought this was a great idea to supplement breakfast and lunch, but she’s going through a case in 4 days. Initially, a case would last a little over a week. As of today, a case of 24 only lasts 4 days, which means she drinks on average 6 bottles a day. While I’m excited this is working for her, she still isn’t gaining weight, but she doesn’t seem as weak or frail. The bigger issue for me is that this is an expensive solution and she is not eating prepared meals, except for when I bring them. She eats very little and leaves the leftovers to go to waste. She is essentially on a liquid diet. I have no idea how to get her to eat more food. I tried to cut back on the frequency of the Boost cases, but she’s going through them even faster now. Need suggestions as to how to figure out the best and most economic solution. Because of my persistence, she is now offering money. I told her I can’t afford to buy $25 cases every 4 days and don’t think she should spend money drinking that much Boost. Need suggestions and advice. Thank you!
