Mom suffered bi-lateral strokes 2 weeks ago. Amazingly, there was no paralysis, though she has gone in and out of being lucid. Because of the my father's age and lay-out of their home, she was transferred to a skilled nursing center rather than home, which I know from prior discussions, she did not like!! During a very lucid conversation this morning, she told my father (95 y.o.) she was "seriously considering not eating". She is profoundly hard of hearing & legally blind. There is a DNR & Advanced Directive in place and a feeding tube is not an option. I totally respect her wishes if this is what she wants, but can it happen in a skilled nursing setting? Would hospice be appropriate or can they oversee something like this? Has anyone had experience with someone rationally choosing to die when they have just had enough?
