My Mom is 90yo and in late Stage 5 to Stage 6 ALZ disease. As I'm setting up her meds for the day I ask myself why are we giving her all these meds. Why are we treating her high blood pressure, anemia, high cholesterol, low thyroid, dementia etc. The prospect of living long enough to die of ALZ disease sounds almost worse than dying of any of the number of chronic health problems that almost routinely affect the elderly. Does anybody else think this is nuts or just me? Don't worry, I won't stop Mom's meds because I know she would want to take them as the doctor ordered.
