My uncle is much like your Dad — he eats what we put in front of him but seems to have lost his appetite for food, and maybe living, since my Aunt died last year. I’ve been trying Ensure and that helps a little. Lately, we’ve been taking him on short “road trips” to the lake nearby and renting a rowboat and those seem to be helping him a lot. Maybe you can try something like that for your Dad.
