"in frona"?: Ask your mom why she's throwing away her medications rather than taking them. Does she understand consequences of her actions? What's truly necessary?What are her health goals? Perhaps hospice would be more appropriate. Take her to see her Family Doc for evaluation including cognitive function and capacity to make decisions. If demented but otherwise healthy, consider mixing meds into food/drink.
