I'm assisting with my Dad's end-of-life care, and it's becoming clear that his condition is deteriorating rapidly. He has been given only weeks to live, and his mobility has declined significantly. We've had to provide him with various aids to keep him comfortable at home, which is where he wants to be. His appetite has greatly diminished, and his fluid intake is insufficient. Over the past two days, he's been increasingly drowsy, often dozing or sleeping. Today, while the nurse was here to bathe him, he experienced a brief seizure and became sick afterward. Thankfully, he recovered within a few minutes, but it's been a concerning development.
All of these changes have occurred within just one week, and it's left me wondering if these are his final days or if there's more time. I'm uncertain about the stage of his condition and how to plan and support him in these moments. My Mum is staying busy to cope with her fears. How can I provide assistance and support during this challenging time?
