Hi @aliali – I'm sorry to hear about your struggles with your dad. I know its not easy to get an adult person to do anything they don't want to do. I'm wondering if he is doing okay otherwise with eating a reasonable diet? If so, I would suggest including plenty of fruits and veggies,adding soup to every meal, keeping popsicles and frozen ices in the freezer, and stocking up on fruit and vegetable juice. I'm also wondering if you might find more support over in the Caregivers Group. If you have a chance, check out this link: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/caregivers/
Do you live with your dad – or close by? Does he have a primary caregiver or is he on his own? This is a difficult situation and my heart is going out to you as you try to make sure he is safe and well-hydrated.
