Hello,
I just wanted to say hello and express my support for everyone who has a loved one with alzheimer's. My mother-in-law, once one of the most proud, clever and stylish women I've ever known, is having end of life care and it is awful....Both of my own parents died from cancer and their respective ends did not go on and on like hers is. She is barely drinking and eating only tiny amounts of ice cream since breaking her hip on Feb 13th. She is in a lovely care home with wonderful people looking after her but it is heartbreaking to see her this way. I know there is nothing that can be done, I just wanted to reach out xxx
