Apr 14, 2017 · Alzheimer's and Heart Disease When to Enter Palliative Care in Caregivers

My 68 yr old husband is in 8th year of Alzheimer’s but still considered “high functioning” (which means he can walk, talk and eat by himself). He does not want any more stents or heart interventions other than meds. He is at home. Power of Attorney and DNR papers were signed along time ago, but now after 2 heart attacks, I’m praying to make the right decisions. If he were in a facility would they treat him with stents? He is adamant he wants to die at home, but hospice says he doesn’t qualify yet since no heart info / EF is available. I want to honor his wishes but I also need to be clear with God and how this all works in real life.
