97 yo grandma now has a hip fracture complicated with CHF, afib, severe aortic stenosis on HOSPICE -- what to expect??
I just heard my grandmother broke her hip today. She's on hospice using morphine for chest pain and palpitations from time to time. She lives independently. Her hospice nurse says she doesn't think a surgeon will offer her a surgery since she's too old given her health.
What info can you share here and what can I expect? My grandmother doesn't want to be bedbound and wants to remain in her home. She's a very stubborn woman and I am her primary caregiver at a distance. I'd like to know pros and cons of outcomes if surgery is even offered. She will not enjoy rehab, not a good patient if things are not well.
