His medical needs include administering IV antibiotics for hospital aquired infection, trach care, g-tube feedings, and wound dressings.

You can ask his doctor for a palliative or hospice consult.. But first, I wonder how all of this life support got approved in the first place. Surely there were several family meetings when all of these procedures were done. The general rule in medicine is first do no harm and second, to do no further harm. Is there a back story or a new story. Generally there is a sticker shock when long term care is needed.

Talk to the doctor. Sometimes doctors are reluctant to bring these things up. You bring it up.

Only his doctor can make such a recommendation. You do not apply for it.
