My dad had a severely debilitating stroke over 3 years ago that left him paralyzed on one side of his body. He literally went over night from being an extremely active 86 year old to needing 24 hour care. Over the past several months he has gotten weaker and dementia has set in. My sisters and I live in different states then he does, but come to see him on a monthly basis and have been called by his aides to come down immediately a few times in the past few months, thinking the end was near- but he always bounces back. He now has had black stools for the last couple of weeks, but we not want any invasive testing done on him or have him put in the hospital due to Covid. I am his medical POA, so ultimately it is my decision? My sister and step mother (who we do not have a great relationship with) want to call in hospice because his quality of life is zero. I understand what they are saying but personally have a difficult time “playing God” with my dad’s life- especially since he has never told us that he is ready to die. Has anyone been in this situation?
