How long can an elderly peron live on water and a protein drink .

My mother is 84 and has not eaten food in 4 months. I try to straighten her arms or legs but I can't, it hurts her too much. Her skin is tearing off her arms and legs. She has not been able to move any of her extremities for about at least 8 months.
She does not void in about 3 weeks.
She still knows who I am and can talk when she wants to.
She has been diagnosed with dementia. Blood Pressure stays about 80/60....She is just a skeleton. Dr's don't have any answers.

Thanks for your time.
