Dad's home on hospice. Do we tell him?
My father is home on hospice care. He hasn’t gotten out of bed in over 2 mos. He is extremely weak and can’t turn over due to weakness. My mother has to feed him. His quality of life is horrible. His mind is good and there is no dementia. He hasn’t acknowledged he is “ dying” and as far as he knows he is getting home care due to his weakness. I don’t want to cause him anxiety and make what is already a misearable existence worse. How does one approach? My mother doesn’t want him to know he is dying. It’s a very sad situation because he is not imminent but is definitely not getting better.
