Dad is pretty much bedridden in a nursing home. When they try to do therapy, he resists. When they move him from bed to wheelchair, he yells. He was even yelling when they were trying to take his shoe off. Could he be in that much pain? While sitting in the wheelchair, he slumps forward and his eyes are closed most of the time. From what we're told by the staff, he eats a decent breakfast (about 50%) but doesn't eat much for lunch/dinner and gets very little fluids and they have had to give him an IV. He's lost about 12 pounds in 3 weeks. We are getting his home ready for him with a live in because we believe he will get better care and may eat/drink more. We're not sure what else to do except to make him comfortable. He doesn't want any life support and has a dnr. If he becomes dehydrated at home, how do we handle this and is it considered life support? What about food? The sad thing is he was feeding himself, although slowly, 3 weeks ago. He seems to have gone down hill drastically in the last 3 weeks. Thanks for your help.
