He is 81, has terminal cancer, dementia, and has now developed dysphagia (which prevents him from eating what he wants). He is in hospice home care. He keeps wanting me to take him to a doctor to see what is wrong & how to fix it. He has a living will which rules out tube feeding, artificial support, etc. I try to make him understand..........without spelling it out in certain terms..........that there is nothing the medical people can do. I don't want to flat out say "you are dying"; how can I handle this? He knows chemo didn't work; his oncologist even told him that eventually the cancer would get him.
