questions about the senior

Hello Everybody:

My grandama is 96 years old. During recent four years,she became clumsy but generally speaking,she is fine and don't need much care from us. The situation has been getting worse since the end of last year, it is difficult for her to move and she want to sleep for the most time of a day and only ate very very small amount of food,mostly only half bottle of milk or no more than 10g bread.

Anyone know how to make her eat something? As i think,she will get weaker and weaker if she eat almost nothing. Why she just want to do nothing but sleep. Is it a natural process of aging? She said she felt no pain or anything wrong just need to sleep and didn't like to eat.

Thanks in advance for your kind suggestions and comments.

Re: questions about the senior

Hi, Is she living at home with you or somebody? She needs constant care at her age and condition. What does her doctor say?

Thanks for reply.

She lives with us at home. My mom takes constant care of her. My grandma says she has no illness and doctor also gives no clear opinion of her situation.

Seven days ago,doctor gave her the IV or introvenous injection mainly physiological saline but her vein is hard to find now. It seems her vein atrophies.

Now we don't know what to do. Do you know about it? Thanks
