My MIL went into the hospital in Jan of this year suffering from end stage copd (and still smoking) the doctors said basically your lungs are shot and do you want to go home and die? So she went home under hospice care, my FIL's care, and 24 hour paid caretakers. Not only is she ill but she suffers from untreated anxiety and OCD. This makes her extremely difficult to deal with. She can't and won't do anything for herself. She's so pumped up on the steroids she takes that she rarely sleeps, then takes these delusional fits where sometimes she is convinced someone is poisioning her. She needs people to care for her 24-7 bc she is so needy and difficult. This has been going on for almost a year now and my FIL is at the end of his rope and spending 8000 a month on caretakers and medical expenses. My question is, can she go into a nursing home to lesson the burden on my FIL and her sons?
