Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear that your dear Dad is so very ill and not eating. Please for his sake, contact a clinical dietitian IMMEDIATELY (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will work out a diet for your Dad that firstly tempts him to eat and then ensures that he has the best possible nutrition. This is time when you need professional help for this specific case, which only a dietitian who can assess the patient can do for you.
