We are not going to engage in force feeding or IV supplements. She has dementia and spends much of the day sitting due to previous fractures, and not understanding that she cant walk unassisted. She lives in her own home with 24 hr private care. I live 3,000 miles away and visit every two months. She eats more when i am there since I cook her favorite food, and she is generally of better spirits when I am there. Just wondering if others have dealt with this and how they are coping accepting the obvious.
