My sisters and I have been caring for our 96 year old at home. He has a DNR. He has congestive heart failure and aspiration issues.
His doctor is currently paying him visits at home.
Our greatest fear is that he will struggle to breath and we won’t be able to help him.
We live in California. Does anyone know what exactly the paramedics can do to “make him comfortable” and relieve his
breathing issues at home? We see conflicting information about the paramedics being able to administer meds/oxygen, He currently is not on oxygen at home and we do not currently have hospice.
We realize dad may be in crisis at a time when hospice is not at the house and we would like to have a plan.
