      I also agree with Peroll regarding hospice. They are very accommodating to what her needs and desires may be, as well as your needs. She may require round-the-clock care, in which case a hospice center would help. It also gives you a chance to breathe as you go through this difficult time. Or, maybe a daily nurse visit is all you need. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

      You'll habe a few hoapice options. You can do in-home care, hospice center care, hospital hosoice care, and skilled njraing center hosoice care. In all locatioms there are services for the patient and the family. This is a hard time but as was suggested, use this time to reminisce if she's able. Some patients want to spell out their final wishes from burial to detail on what they want done with personal property. Be open to these discussions, many patients feel more in control, in a situation in which they know the disease is out of control, when they can direct activities around them now and for when they are gone.
