My Mom has dementia and has declined steadily the last five months. We have been taking her monthly to her dr appts, but it is getting harder to transport her and get her back in the house.
I am wondering what would happen next if she has an appointment, but we are not able to get her there if she is too weak. Can I insist that a nurse come to evaluate her needs? We would call an ambulance if it came to that, but is there a way she can be checked at home? Would we need hospice then?
