My sister is 54 & lives in an awesome RCF. She has had a feeding tube for 5 years because of gastro problems - mostly esophagus. Though she's had a g-tube, she's had a good quality of life, i.e., she bowls, dances, plays bingo, gets her nails done, goes to movies, etc. In the last 6 months she has had one infection after another. Our parents are both deceased & I am responsible for her care. I love her more than I can say & do everything I can for her, even though I have RA myself. In the last 6 months she's gone from infection to infection, i.e., g-tube site infections & problems, aspiration pneumonia, & lastly a c-diff infection. She still has some quality of life but is getting very fragile and frail. How do I know when it's time to start her on hospice? I see her weekly & see her decline. It is tearing me up inside. I've felt responsible for her most of my life. I need support & help on making decisions with her care. Anyone out there who can give me some advice? It's harder watching her decline than it was our dad who died 2 years ago from Parkinson's.
