My sister is 4 years into PSP and she lives in a nursing home in Cali, Colombia. She can´t talk, she can´t walk, she can´t see properly, her left arm is paralysed with her hand totally closed and now she has the PEG. She is aware of what is happening to her and feels sad and depressed, so she pulls her PEG out when she loses her patience, when she is angry and I suppose when she doen´t want to live anymore. We had to rush to the hospital with her few times now and she does it again. Could you help me, please? Nurses at the nursing home don´t know what to do except to tie her up and they are asking me to authorise this.
