Mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimers about 2 years ago and since then she has lived with my husband and I. She is 88 years old and currently has Medicare and Medicaid coverages. She has always been a small eater and has been hardly eating solids for a while, she drinks coffee in the morning, and drinking glasses of Ovaltine with whole milk, supplemented with the powdered form of Ensure. She would have that at least 6 times a day. Doctors are all aware of this. Lately she has been refusing to even drink that any more and only wanting to sleep almost all day and night and refuses to change clothes, bath, brush her teeth, etc. I have brought this up to doctor and he says it is part of her disease. When I insist on her getting up, for example to go to the doctors she comes argumentative and yesterday at the doctor's office she actually slapped me just for passing her a tissue. Not sure how to handle this anymore, any suggestions?
