I spend the majority of my time with her. I fear that my dad has decided to stop living his life. He has been in fairly good health and gets around with the help of a walker. He is a fall risk. But he has macular degeneration and can barely see. Also, he has moderate dementia that he knows he can't remember hardly anything anymore and I know this bothers him to a great extent. His personality has changed lately, he doesn't want to eat, or go out of the house or really spend time with anyone and he sleeps a lot during the day. I've been worried about him for the last several days and it dawned on me today that he might be giving up on living any more. I have read earlier posts about an elderly parent wanting to give up and die and it was recommended by some to contact hospice. My dad is not ill, do I still contact hospice. Can they help me or him? What do you think?
