My dad is 80 and and just a week back he started losing his appetite. Now he is slowly losing his memory and is not able to identify the places he goes to.He has been a very healthy person till now and physically and mentally sound.He is diabetic for the past 15 years and recently developed high blood pressure.

He has had a sad past and thinks he has not done much for my brother and me.How much ever we try to convince him we are doing well he doesn't agree with us.He has been cheated by his kin several years back.But he hardly discusses that now.

The doctor has given him low dosage sleeping pill so can get enough sleep along with tablets for diabetes and high BP.We are all worried about him..Please HELP. His inability to eat and recognize is of great concern for me.I have never seen him like this. I love my dad and I need help urgently.
