Does anyone have any advice on family caregivers to someone in final stages of terminal cancer, all the symptoms are there, refusing/unable to eat or drink anything at all really, chronic fatigue, etc, but still in total denial or willing to broach the subject, countering every suggestion of nutrition, medication etc. With "when I'm stronger, I've been like this before in my life" she is refusing to mention any new symptoms (such as swollen feet, total loss of appetite etc..) to any medical professional. And gets very angry with family if we do. Also dealing with elderly husband in denial too.
