Hi, My mother has Vascular Dementia. She is bed ridden, needs full support from carers (2 carers x 4 hrs per day). Luckily mum is still in her own home (my brother lives there). She has a hospital bed downstairs but due to muscle degeneration needs to be moved by carers to prevent bed sores. It breaks my heart to see mum, an ex school teacher sucome to this horrendous illness. During the past year mum has been in hospital for infections. The last time, which was last WK the doctor in A&E strongly suggested a DNR on mums file. Can anybody relate to this? I feel totally helpless even though I see mum most days and make sure she drinks as not to get dehydrated. Please help??
