My mom has later stage Alzheimer's and stage 4 lung cancer. She is on hospice care for Alzheimer's, but they won't pay for her cancer treatment injections (Faslodex). We don't know whether to let hospice go so Medicare will pay for her cancer treatment or to let the cancer treatment go and keep hospice to care for her. Hospice doesn't actually do very much....an aide gives her a shower 3 times a week and a nurse comes by once a week to check on her (blood pressure, temperature...just the basics). We don't know how painful not treating the cancer would be. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
