mom has addisons

My mother was diagnosed with addisons 3 years ago. She has been treated, but has improved little. She seams to have declined in the past few months. she is under the care of physicians as well.

She fell and broke her hip. She had surgery, entered a rehab nursing facility, did or I should say struggled with therapy for the first 6 weeks. They took her off therapy and classified her as non rehab-able. she is now a permanent resident at the nursing home. she has declined in health every day. she is too weak to get out of bed. she stopped eating, and has since gotten pneumonia. No doctor has seen her, but checked a chart and prescribed her antibiotics for the pneumonia. She is dying slowly and painfully. Should we request her be brought to the ER? The doctor for the nursing facility is aware of her addisons.

My mother has given up and is very tired. What do I do?
