Dear Carol: My dad is living with us for the time being. He has Alzheimer’s and I know that he will eventually need professional care. I’ve taken a leave of absence from my job to provide care for three months because I want this time with him. My main frustration now is that he doesn’t want to eat. He seems hungry at times, but then when we sit down to a meal, he just picks. I make meals he used to like but that doesn’t seem to help. Do you have any suggestions? B.R. C.
