My Dad is very depressed and is more concerned about dying than he is living. He still is eating - though very frail since all he does is sleep and watch tv. Hospice does have a rehab person coming in to work with him - is he a lost cause? Is he shortening his life because of his attitude? My Pop is no longer the same person. He is on 100 mg of zoloft. Any suggestions? He shouldn't be this way yet.
