I phoned the doctor and told him this and asked if I should get hospice or an in home nurse to assess his condition. He reluctantly agreed and an RN has been coming 2-3 times a week. She does the same things he does when he visits him. He is diabetic, has prostate cancer, and vascular dementia. It is all my 86 year old mother and I can do to get him out of bed, eat, take his insulin and daily actiivities. The nurse is communicating with the docotr's office now, and he recently refilled a prescription for dementia but said he needed to see him in 30 days. He takes Prinzide and Atenolol for high blood pressure, Simivastatin for cholesterol, insulin, Avodart, and Namenda. For legal concerns, we live in Ohio. What does a doctor want you do do when you are not physically able to make a visit. He has been going to him for the past 25 years and always kept his appointments until now. What do I do?
