Question Is this end stage Parkinson's

My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1995. He has recently been hospitalized for a kidney infection, and then spent 2 months in a rehabilation facility. He was diagnosed upon entering the hospital as end stage Parkinson's. Now I have him back home, with therapists coming to the home, but he seems to be weakening and is very tired all the time. Does one come out of end stage Parkinson's and then reenter the stage again? How often does this happen? At what point do you consider Hospice care?
