Mom is 93, has dementia and lives in a memory care facility. Quality of life is poor and we're looking at the end of funds and transfer to a medicaid facility which might be beyond visiting distance. I have full power of attorney and pay all bills. ( son ). I'd like to transition to comfort care only. The POLST form has been updated to reflect that. However the doctor states they need to meet with both of us before considering a medication stop order. I've set up the appointment but not sure what I'll do if mom is questioned and says she wants to keep taking the meds. I could stop paying the pharmacy, and have told them not to send any more. This morning mom said " have you seen your parents lately." So I'm not optimistic about a meaningful Dr. consultation.
