Hi Kim 404,

What a hard situation and strain on you, both physically and emotionally. Is your Dad diabetic and is it being controlled? With dementia, it's unlikely you'll make much of a dent regarding better nutrition since he sounds like he wasn't responding to that before it started. Low fat and sugar substitutes might help.

Meanwhile, I hope you have some assistance in performing his routine daily hygiene because you need to protect yourself from undue physical damage.

Take care of yourself,
Judy
