My mother stopped walking due to Alzheimer's cognitive decline about 9 months ago. She fell out of her wheelchairs at assisted living and broke her leg bone where the bone connects to the hip. Our options are to continue Hospice and treat with pain medicine or have surgery. My mother stopped talking 6 months ago so there is no way to tell how much pain the broken bone is causing but it was discovered when she expressed pain being moved. Either way I feel like she will be bedridden as there is no way PT or rehab will work since she refuses to walk. I feel taking her out of a familiar environment and exposing her to ansthesia will all kill her or make the disease progess. But doing nothing about a broken bone seems heartless too. Has anyone else faced this decision?
