Mom was put on Hospice after she suffered a seizure. They took her off to most common drugs A & N... They told me her ALZ wasn't going to be cured, and we don't see any improvements...Why give it to her. I agree. At this stage, the disease will be continuing anyway...Why prolong it? She was very active, fun, vibrant. She is all love, Now I get the long stare...The 2 main drugs were not helping. She is only taking throid, vitamins, ensure. Doc. took her off low dosage high blood pres. pills.

Yes, Hospice does evaluate drugs and removes the ones that are not contributing to immediate comfort. Some of the drugs that they stopped for my husband they restarted, because it was clear he was more comfortable and peaceful taking them.
