Was the poor thing a rhododendron once?

I wonder if its an azalea ? If so it may well be unhappy in your soil unless you have acid peaty soil. You can tell this by doing a soil test or by looking at neighbouring gardens to see if azaleas or rhododendrons grow well in your area. If not then feed it with sequestered iron or any tonic for acid loving plants...Or just give it up as a bad job and  get rid of it!

well past useful life 

When something gets to this state it's never going to be good to look at again so might as well go

I'm not usually one for giving up on plants but I agree. Take it out and plant something else.

Check the soil, aspect requirements, and put some good compost in with whatever you plant

Agreed ....give it a good burial!
