I am taking care of my 70 year old step uncle who is blind and mute, he had infections on his feet and inside his mouth, his feet were very swollen and I carried him to the ER and found out he had a urinary tract infection along with yeast in the mouth and a fungal infection on his feet. That's been three months ago, I was suggested by some of the nurses to give him yogurt, hello, apple sauce and a snack with water for his evening meal, I've been doing that ever since then! Now he has no infections no swelling and he uses the bathroom on a regular basis but his family is now complaining that I am starving him, (not all of them), how do I handle this? The nurses tell me they haven't seen him look this good in years! Please help

Perhaps you could have them contact the hospital that recommended this diet to confirm that you are giving him these foods based on their professional advice. Sometimes people need to hear it from the "experts" before they believe it.

Yes ,I totally agree with Splotchy that you need to tell his family members that you are giving him after concerning doc only .Along with this ,If they think you are starving him ,then you can try out giving him some organic seed that helps for controlling hunger craving which would be fruitful for both.
