  • What could be the reason my mother is just not eating?

    The negative feelings associated with grief can leave many with a lack of appetite and disinterested in food and eating. After losing a loved one, most people experience sorrow, perhaps numbness, and even guilt or anger, and gradually these feelings ease, to accept loss and move forward, after 6-9 months at the most. For some people, feelings of loss can be debilitating and don't improve after time. This is known as complicated grief, sometimes called persistent complex bereavement disorder. According to estimates, between a fifth and a third of people are at risk of a complicated grief response and 10%-20% of individuals display such symptoms Signs and symptoms of complicated grief may include lack of progress in accepting the loss, lack of trust in others, trouble carrying out normal routines, and isolation and withdrawal. An older adult who has lost a partner may also have several chronic illnesses such as type-2 diabetes, kidney failure or early dementia, and as a result may forget or neglect to take medications. Poorly managed chronic diseases can further contribute to poor nutritional intake. Contact your mental health professional doctor for problems functioning that don't improve after 6-9 months of the passing of a loved one. Healthcare professionals play a significant role in screening and recognizing signs of depression and referring to appropriate services. A family member can make sure there is adequate assistance with everyday tasks like shopping, meal preparation and provide company at meal times. Consider convenience foods, ready meals and meal delivery services, which might play a role in helping maintain oral intake. With reduced appetite, it is important that someone tries to sustain their oral intake and a good strategy is to have small, frequent meals and snacks throughout the day. Nutritious drinks, such as whole milk, milkshakes, or, fruit juice, fruit smoothies and milky hot drinks, soups, all of which can play a role in helping someone maintain energy and calorie intake.
