My Mother is in the hospital for dehydration.. She also has a version of dysphagia.. but is eating "honey" textured food. She also has dementia but knows who I am and can speak to me and also recognizes people and can carry some conversations. She was giving alot of medications that she wasnt use to( from no BP meds to 5 BP meds) and was knocked out from the meds and in the hospital they are suppose to adjust the meds. But now I got a call from Palliative care to make an appointment to talk..
I dont want my mother on either hospice or palliative care unless I see that she doesnt want to live which at this point is not the case.
So what do you think they will discuss at this meeting and when should someone go on Palliative care?
