Hi  and welcome to the online community

I'm sorry to hear that your parent is not wanting to eat or drink at the moment. Have you spoken to their CNS to ask for advice?

If you're worried that they might be dehydrated don't hesitate to call your parent's GP or the NHS 111 out of hours service for advice.

You could also post a question here in ask a dietitian and the volunteer dietitian Alice will respond within 3 working days.

When you have a minute it would be really useful if could pop something about your parent's journey so far into your profile as it helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
