My dad had a major hemmoragic stroke two years ago and wasn't found for 2-3 days. After having emergency brain surgery he survived but is paralyzed on his left side, is wheelchair bound, and suffers severe cognitive impairment. He is now in MC and requires assistance for basically all of his daily activities.
After going through several physical and occupational therapists his improvement has been minimal and I've been told by his current doctor that his life expectancy will likely be severely reduced. Despite this, my grandmother still believes he can continue to recover if only he were in a better facility, received more therapy, took fewer medications (she's convinced he is on too many drugs), etc.
I visit him weekly and he only seems to be getting worse. I feel like I've done everything I can for him. I hate seeing him suffer but he has consistently refused to participate in therapy and can't cognitively comprehend how it could benefit him. Maybe he has just given up. Either way I've accepted that he won't ever get better. How can I explain this to my grandmother?
