My dad has been in a SNF since February. He has Parkinson’s. Since that time we have seen him digress rapidly. He no longer can stand or even walk with a therapist. He has had a bad fall and is pretty much bedridden. His speech has digressed to mumbling and you can barely hear or understand him. Swallowing is also becoming an issue. The nurses have suggested we might want to consider hospice. Has anyone else had experience with hospice? What are the pros and cons? Is it a “death sentence”? When should you agree to put your loved one on hospice?
