My mother has been on a sharp decline especially the past year. She gave up and long time ago saying she doesn't want to live. She barely eats and rarely drinks except to swallow her pills. She struggles to swallow them now. She has lost over 30 punds the last 6 months. I have to pick her up out of the chair bed or toilet and she shuffles to the bathroom after I put her at her walker. I can't get any help. Not a social worker not hospice. Her doctor ordered home health. They wanted to put her in rehab but she is so crippled she can't do rehab. The nurse said she would be a good candidate for hospice but her doctor refuses to order it. I am watching her suffer. She is so uncomforable and I can't even get a social worker to call me. They said it has to be a dire situation. How much worse do they want her to be. The nurse said she has a failure to thrive. I am at my wits end. My back is out and I can barely walk. I love my mother but I need help. I believe that she is dying and I would like to see her comforted. She is in so much pain physically and emotionally. I am considering taking her to another county to the er and see if I can get her into hospice there. What should I do?
