Our expert says:
Having been through an even more difficult but analogous experience myself, and having helped over the years to develop the whole con cept of hospice, I don't understand why your cousin wants to put the poor lady into an old age home. Maybe she's scared of cancer, and scared that she won'tbe able to cope with caring for her. And why has nobody asked the woman herself what she wants ? Its easy to get a helper, and for the family to share the chores of caring --- and a hospice is specifically designed to provide support for the family as well as the patient, and competent care as regards whatever she needs in the way of symptom control, etc.
Can you imagine how abandoned someone would feel, being dumped in an Old Folks home by a daughter who doesn't care enough to care for you ?
