Mum has deteriorated dramatically over the last couple of days, is now barely conscious and hasn't eaten or drunk for 48 hours. NH told me today that she is very poorly, that the GP had been to see her and put her on an end of life care package, and that they were waiting for his prescription to arrive. I was too shocked and upset to ask what this actually means. Can anyone tell me what to expect? I couldn't stay at the NH this evening.
