Hello from JustAnswer.

I am sorry that your wife is so ill.

It is not clear what question you are asking. It is true that many people that have degenerative neurologic diseases will reach a stage at which only supportive care can be offered. However, it is impossible to determine over the internet whether your wife has reached this stage. At this point, it would be reasonable to request a second opinion form another Neurologist.
