My Dad is 92 years old and has been in a nursing home for 6 years. He has received wonderful care, and has been content. All the staff loves him, because he had such a good demeanor. Yesterday, I had to put him in Hospice, because of end stage Dementia. He has been going down hill gradually, but in the last three weeks, there has been a drastic decline. He is no longer eating or talking and his body is shutting down. They will be giving him comfort care. Now, our whole vacation is up in the air. Hospice will be doing a thorough evaluation, and then we will make our decision about our vacation.
