Topic: Mom is enrolled in Hospice
After much thought and consideration, I decided to call hospice on Wednesday. An admission nurse came by the house yesterday and talked to me for almost two hours to get the process started. They delivered a hospital bed and bed side commode the same night, I was very impressed with the speed.
They also delivered liquid pain and nausea meds last night, I'm waiting for the hospice nurse to come and give me instructions on how to administer those.
Mom is comfortable in her "new bed" and I hope she will stay that way for a period of time........
Mom grew weaker rapidly in the last few weeks and any hope of further treatments became impossible. I believe calling hospice was the right decision.
