What is the prognosis for a 90 year old man with COPD?

what is the prognosis for a 90 year old man with COPD

I am giving him two weeks in skilled nursing with reassessment at that time, I have also spoken with hospice. His doctors are very vague but I feel it is a short life expectancy at this time under the best case scenario
