Hi,

The symptoms that you have described are more suggestive of psychosis than depression. In my opinion, you should consult a good psychiatrist and try to arrange a home visit by the doctor. Your father may need to be given medicines mixed in his food if he refuses to take them. But obviously, a doctor first needs to be consulted.

Best wishes.
