My Father is in the hospital and we will find out in the next few days if it is his recent UTI or end stage Parkinson's. If his throat closes up or he becomes unresponsive, my mother could be faced with the decision of putting him on a feeding tube. We know nothing about it. Can we keep him out of a nursing home and also have a feeding tube? What is the quality of life?
We don't know enough to even know what questions to ask.
