My parent is elderly, lives on their own in a small caravan, they are unable to care for themselves, is bed bound, in pain, immobile and has advanced Pancreatic Cancer spread to stomach, lungs, hip.
They have had multiple litres of fluid removed from their lung cavities.
The hospital staff have told me they will be released to their home, to fend for themselves, with minimal palliative care support.
I do not live in QLD and have nowhere low cost to live to oversee their care at home.
They have limited lifespan left and I only desire that they have a dignified, peaceful, pain free end in a supportive medical environment, such as palliative care at Hospice in a funded bed, or Palliative ward at a hospital.
