dads girl Posted June 5, 2007 Share Posted June 5, 2007 So the time has finally come and hospice has been coming to my dad's house for the past month or so. He adamantly does not want to go to an inpatient place. He fell last Friday and had to have stitches and has been a little off since then. He has had this reaction before to being in a hospital. Anyway yesterday two of his siblings came over and yelled at my mom and my brother that he should be sent away. At this point he sits in the living room and watches tv and an aide comes for 4 hours. My mom is looking into an aide for the rest of the day. Is there really any benefit to sending him away especially when he gets so agitated in hospitals. I feel that if he goes into the facility they will sedate him. I am just mad that they feel they know what is best. This is a horrible situation to be in- noone really knows what is best but we are all trying. They made my brother cry. I just keep on telling my sister that no matter what we do he is dying putting him someplace else isn't going to change that. I just wanted to get that off to my chest, I am sure some people on this board have been through the same thing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
