My mother in-law says that she does not want to eat, she not hungry. Is this normal? I don't want to keep telling her to eat, because she get's upset. Please help! Thank you for your understanding.
GREATFUL AND BLESSED!

Does your MIL have a dementia? If so then yes this is "normal". I think they lose the sense of hunger along with other things. Or they will take one bite out something and think they are full. My grandmother does this a lot. Is there any foods that she really enjoys? You can try making something with her, let her help if she is able. She may want to try the foods then. Is she losing weight?

Thank for your response. My mother in-law has Alzheimer's and diabetes. Im worried, is this part of Alz, or she is depressed becuase she wants to go back home? Right now she has does not have a place of her own, she was staying with family CT where she is from. She was staying with her sister during the week and with her niece on the weekend, but in between that, It was very hard for them to take her to appts, get med and just dealing with her was starting to take a toll on everyone. Now she is here in TX where she is with me and it rather boring, we go out shopping allot, but she rather sit in her room and stare at the tv. I take her to get crafts but she does not want to do any of them.  What do I do? I need your help! Thanks so much
GREATFUL AND BLESSED!

Yes it is a normal part of this DD not wanting to eat as red said
Maybe you could get the doc to RX her some Boost or Ensure and make her some yummy milkshakes
With low sugar of course...........

She may also have problems with the Diabetes from not eating making her not want to do may things or even have the energy to do them

PLZ keep us posted
