Because some days she is able to walk with the help of aides and her walker, and other days can feed herself, an evaluation showed she was not declining. When she was brought to the hospice center in NJ from rehab, we thought she would have under six months to live. Since she is at the facility nearly six months as I write this, now the board or committee asked us to find her a nursing home, but the inoperable mass in her pelvic region which got her into hospice in the first place, is still there and hasn't changed a recent MRI showed. Her children believe our mother is rallying at end-of-life, as on some days she stays in bed with her eyes closed and can't feed herself. Other days, maybe every third or fourth, she attempts to get out of bed herself (she fell twice) and go for a walk, or on a trip, before the aides step in. This is very recent, different behavior for her. We think this is an end-of-life rally, but the hospice center wants her out. She is well cared for and very comfortable there, and we need some expert advice! Her doctor vows to work with us, but unless that tumor, or mass, has grown or changed, the hospice center wants her out. We wish she hadn't been sent there in the first place, as we could have settled her in assisted care or a nursing home. At the end before she was hospitalized, I was my mother's caregiver and in the last three weeks she lost all bodily functions and the ability to walk, plus she was in pain, which we think was due to the tumor. She still cannot care for herself and is totally incontinent, unable to feed herself most days (unlike when she was at home), etc. Our goal is to keep her in the hospice facility because she cannot adapt to change and it took her three months to stop her from having panic attacks once she went in. Now she seems relaxed and comfortable. We feel that any change will kill our 95-year-old mom.
