Hello @hilsy

As your mom is age 90, with a history of cancer treatment and dementia, have you considered comfort care at this point in her life?

Here is some information on Palliative Care (different than hospice care) which might be considered in addition (or in place of) the extreme ordeal of the dental work that is being suggested.

Thanks for this. I have to better educate myself on the difference between the home care she is receiving and palliative care. My parents currently have 24 hour care from a group of caregivers, 3 of 5 of whom have worked for them for 2+ years.
