If there is no hope of improvement, what do you want done for you? If you have arthritis in your rib cage CPR can cause bones to break and possibly puncture a lung. A respirator is surgically attached and can't be removed suddenly. Do you want to be fed intravenously or with a feeding tube, or not fed at all. And many other details. Hospice care can also be at home. It's good to know all of the options. You can probably get information through Google.
