I see this first hand from working in hospice where patients have been relocated into their children’s homes because they can no longer take care of themselves or bel eft alone for that matter. Prior to them moving into their children’s homes, there were already pending medical issues that prompted the final move in such as reoccurring falls, fractures, forgetfulness/cognitive decline, poor vision, constant hospitalizations, failure to thrive and failed cancer treatments/interventions. I even see this on admission with elderly patients and not just my hospice patients. So sometimes the child has to basically be the more responsible one when it comes to the safety and health of the elderly parent since sometimes the parent can be in denial of need or unaware of how severe their condition is.
