My grandmother got to the point that she would not eat, even if someone sat with her for a long time and tried to coax her and feed her, etc. The doctor said it was advanced Alzheimers, and that she didn't know she was supposed to eat, and she didn't feel hungry. There was nothing we could do. They finally put in a feeding tube, but she never really had any quality of life after that. The feeding tube just postponed the inevitable for a few months.
So sorry you are having to deal with this. I know it is not easy.
Peace Be With You,
