I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling with this, that must be very difficult to handle and stressful with your farher’s health issues.
Regarding the hydration issue itself- will he drink other hydrating drinks, or eat ice cubes or popsicles?
It sounds like it could be helpful to have medical assistance- has he seen the doctor recently? Have you looked into whether he qualifies for in-home care of any sort?

I think the obstacle I have to deal with is not just hydration; it is “How to adhere to the physician regulations??”. He rejected drinking water, having medication and syringe. Thus, his CT scan has been delayed two days; he is still suffering from pain due his gangrenous toes!!
