Mother is 94. She was taken off of hospice care in January into the regular care of her geriatric physician who comes to the house every other month. He was here last week and said she was doing well despite the fact that she has not been eating much. She has gone from eating on her own to being spoon fed within a week. She was able to go to the bathroom with her walker but now has no strength to get out of bed. The doctor prescribed mirtazapine, which made her totally dopey and after one dose decided to not give her this horrible drug. I can't seem to understand what my mother is trying to say and she gets frustrated with me and very angry. I have caregivers during the day who are a big help. I feel like taking care of someone with so many issues that are beyond my capability. I call the doctor for help and guidance but he never returns my calls. I know this office is understaffed but who can I call to help? This is the only geriatric department that makes house calls.
