I am full-time carer for mum. She has suffered 2 strokes which took most of her vision. She has COPD severe and was diagnosed with lung cancer late.last year. She had a course of radiation therapy to shrink tumour that was obstructing airway. Whilst not a cure it did shrink the tumour successfully but her last scan shows it has returned. She is unable to undergo more treatments as her lungs are too bad. We are in the palliative care stage now. She can no longer walk and struggles with breathing every time she moves. It is so terrible to watch her go through this and she keeps telling me she is petrified of dying. She is severely depressed shows no interest in anything any more. What can I do?
