Mom will be 93 this month and is close to late stage dementia. She went to the hospital last week with dehydration issues and atrial fibrillation. At some point before her hospitalization she apparently suffered an "event" and may have even had a small one after she came to stay with me. It's now to the point where I can't care for her because she can't walk and I can't lift her. Some have suggested hospice either at the location or at home or getting her a full-time aide. I know what I would want if I were in my mother's situation, but I'm not sure what she would want and what would be best for her. Even if all of her physical and medical issues would miraculously disappear, she still isn't going to improve mentally. For me it's all about quality of life, but I know it's not the same for everyone. Anyone been through this situation and what were your experiences? I'm the only caregiver and Mom has no directives or proxies and I don't have POA.
