Mom fell at memory care and broke her hip. The orthopedic surgeon gave us two choices. What should I do?
She is 87, has congestive heart failure (CHF) and a congenital hole in her heart, is on oxygen 24/7, and is 90 lbs. She was under hospice (well, until today when she was rushed to hospital). She has a DNR. Orthopedic surgeon gave us two choices, surgery to put two pins in (femoral neck fracture) or palliative care.
This is very new to me and I don't know what is in store for her. She can't go back to memory care because she will need full-time care. What should I do?
