How can I tell if my dad is eating properly? He seems to be getting less interested by the day.
One of the best ways to tell if your dad is eating properly is by checking his fridge. Have you been making sure that he has groceries? And are they getting eaten? Does your dad live alone? Eating is a very social activity for a lot of people, and he may not feel like eating alone. Try and eat with him whenever you can, or arrange company for meal times. When was his last doctor’s visit? Was he weighed there, and was it a loss from a previous visit? If he is eating, but still appears to be losing weight, the doctor may need to do some blood tests to determine if there is something physically wrong with him.
