Mom has CHF and kidney failure. She has been doing dialysis for 12 weeks and home for 8 weeks. She is not getting better and is in fact weaker. Her blood pressure is getting lower, she is not eating and is doing nothing but sleeping and watching A little TV. I don’t see a quality of life. But she will not stop daily’s is and accept Hospice. How can I help her? She is just suffering.
Perhaps just pointing out the convenience of that type of care would work rather than conveying the "last step" aspect of hospice.
It sounds as if she is not there yet, and you find that hard to understand. The only way you could hasten the process (if you want to do that), is to cut down on the support she is getting that makes the current treatment bearable for her. It’s a difficult issue, but the will to live is very strong in some people. Best wishes to both of you.
