    I don't trust those tests at all, it is merely only a snapshot in my opinion. Let's face it who likes exams of any kind, we can all panic and not do so well at any exam, and our blood pressure rises to go with it! My Dad was still scoring high on the test and in mid to late stages of alzheimers...

    Mum at End of life stage

    I know what you mean about the pain thing when swallowing. My Dads face looked in pain but I do think like cragmaid it was to do with the struggle to swallow and the fluid getting stuck and then swallowing over and over to get rid. So sorry to hear of your situation I know it's so hard. X

    Mum not long to go

    Hi Linda, end of life drugs are only administered when they are required, eg if there is a build up of excess mucus or pain relief if required. My Dad did not require end of life drugs at all. I questioned this all the time, but the nurse said as he was peaceful he didn't need them. To be fair...

    Advice needed - Mum on End of Life Care - a total rollercoaster

    My Dad lasted 12 days with no food and minimal fluids. On day 12 we visited him in the morning time and his right elbow was purple, then the mottling began starting at his feet and eventually to his face. Once it reached his face it was a matter of an hour if that. He had warm hands at first and...

    That is good that he is back at the nursing home. He will certainly feel more settled in a familiar environment. It got that way my Dad didn't recognise us but he responded well to the care and nursing staff in the home. Keep posting.

    Ringing daily my Dads nursing home...

    I know Rarkaah it's horrible, and you feel a burden in a way ringing all the time and then don't care in another, it's your Dad and that is that. Sadly, comfortable is all you can hope for at this stage. My Dad passed in August this year, towards the end I wished him a peaceful passing most...
