My Mom is in Assisted Living now, and has mid-stage Alzheimer's. She just had her 2nd (that we know of ) TIA (mini-stroke). My sister and I are wrestling with quality of life issues and palliative care vs. continued emergency room visits. Any support is appreciated! Thank you.

wow ...I just today heard of palliative care ..sounds good. But the quality of life needs to be considered if you feel she would be better in a hospice or nursing home. Closer to dr's and 24hr care .
