For an individual to be eligible for Hospice Care, I understand they must be diagnosed with a terminal illness, with a projected life expectancy of 6 months or less. Is this accurate? What about an elderly man (90 yrs old) who has increasing dementia & is now unable to care for himself without assistance. He is a DNR and does not want any extraordinary measures to keep him alive. He is lethargic and doesn t want to last for years, and is adamant about no nursing home . We don t want to send him to nursing home just to sustain him. He now lives in assisted living with home care 3x daily. Any chance he would be eligible for hospice?

My mother has been diagnosed with E coli . After a week of antibiotics the doctor who was treating her In the hospital says there is nothing he can do and my sister has moved her to hospice. Her kidney function is good as well as her heart . She has had some breathing issues. I find this so hard to believe that everyone has just given up ons her and is leaving her to die. She is not receiving any treatment at all in hospice. Is there nothing that can be done for her. She is in good spirits. She eats a little bit and drinks each day.
