They have finally wore me down and I agreed to let them change our file to a palliative co-coordinator. When she called to make an appointment for interview I asked what she wanted to know and she said the purpose of her visit was to discuss with Jim the options available with "the end of life". I blew my top and told her she would not be allowed to use that terminology in my home. I asked if in there profession did they not have more sensitive terminology that she could use. She explained that deling with cancer patients they were quite aware. I told her that this is not cancer and stress produces a decline in the patient and maybe she should do some reading regarding this disease. I don't know how they handle things but I was under the understanding they would explain the services they could offer and give us more services. I am so upset with these "professionals" that have no compassion or knowledge about what they are dealing with. I hope that everyone of them has to deal with a similar situation so they could understand what the clients are going through. This is not what I signed up for.
