Severe Dehydration in the Elderly
My mother just passed away. I feel like it was because of dehydration in the elderly but doctors were saying she had a stroke and her symptoms were unexplainable.
Weird... because I still feel like she had all the signs of severe dehydration.
You see, my mother was in the process of getting dentures and was eating baby food for a year.
Her frame was getting smaller and smaller. Even though the nurses were saying it was medication, it seems like she just wasn't getting enough foot and fluids.
I feel like the doctors and elderly caregivers didn't do a good enough job. I wish I knew more so that I could have helped her more.
I guess, in the end, children of aging parents need to take care and ask questions about there parents care.
Don't always assume they are being well taken care of. I would suggest starting with researching symptoms on the internet.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?
