Hi, I'm not sure that this is the correct forum but I just wanted to ask the question. My wife's mother is currently suffering from Alzheimers and she lives in Trinidad. She's in a nursing home and we suspect that she is coming to the end of her life. The ideal scenario would be for us to transfer her to a hospice but as such there are no hospices in Trinidad. Therefore the only real option is for her to stay where she lives. Whilst the staff at the care home are very caring and she is very well looked after, they don't have any specific facilities/resources to deal with a patient coming to the end of their life. The main area for concern is easing the pain that my wife's mother will endure in the last days of her life once she is unable to continue to take nutrition/fluids. If she were in the UK, a plan would be put in place by a doctor i.e. morphine to ease any pain but in Trinidad we will specifically need to ask a private doctor to administer any drugs that may be required. Would you be able to give any guidance regarding what we can do and the drugs we can request to make her last days/weeks more comfortable? Your thoughts would be appreciated.
