Any advice on when to call in Hospice? My FIL was at a lovely memory care unit, and was happy and well cared for there. He was declining in terms of mobility. He is 93 years old now. When he could no longer stand, even with help from the aides they sent him to the hospital. He was diagnosed with a UTI and was treated. He is now at a NH. They still have him on antibiotics. It's been three weeks now, and he has not gotten any better. His white cell count is still up. He cannot even sit on his own, not even in bed. Family members are not all in agreement. Some want to keep trying in the hopes he'll get well. I do not believe this is something that can happen in his condition at this age. I do not want him to suffer. When do you know it's time to call in Hospice?
