Assisted Living and DNR (Do Not Resuscitate)

We had similar experience with my mother-in-law. She was in a nursing home and her doctor had her go into the hospice program. The hospice program took over her care in the nursing home. After 5 days, she was so over drugged, she didn’t recognize her daughter or me, so we fired them and the nursing home took great care of her for almost 4 weeks before she passed. We would never want to go into a hospice program.

@tuneared, I regret that your experience with the hospice group for your mil was so counterproductive. Both my sister and closest friend living in different parts of the state received wonderful, compassionate care from Hospice. Just as not all plumbers are equally skilled, there are professionals and organizations which do not measure up. In my sister's small town, Hospice had to come from 75 miles away; in my friend's city, there were more than one Hospice groups to choose from.
