My nans been admitted with UTI in hospital one week ago. She’s not mobile with a zimmer anymore so uses a hoist. She’s on an air mattress due to being unable to move herself for pressure relief. She can talk slightly still, answering questions and mentioning passed away relatives as if they were here. She is having slight trouble swallowing now and is refusing fluids food and meds. She will eat/drink small amounts for myself and sister. Are we prolonging the inevitable? Can this be near end of life when she can still talk small amounts? Nurses say this is the progression and won’t IV any fluids.
