Hello And greetings From AyurvedicCure

Eating cornflakes only have caused depletion of other vital nutrients from the body. One need to take extra care of diet which should consist of fresh fruits and vegetable and two times proper meal. Also it seems that she is dehydrated and hypoglycemic due to this food she is eating. Ask care home to give her good food rich in carbohydrates and plenty of lime water if possible to compensate the sodium potassium levels.
Also you can add ashwagandha capsules as safe and herbal dietary health supplements.
Further queries are always welcome.

Thank you Support
