    Is this the end stage?

    This all makes perfect sense and like you said a roller coaster of emotion. We went through something similar with my dad. One min there was hope then there was not, then they changed his care plan to immobilise him and prepared us for the worse, then rhey were talking of reversing this as...

I'm trying really hard to prepare myself as, like you, I don't want to be an emotional wreck. I'm reading dads eulogy and want to be composed for...

    My husband may be nearing the end

    Is this the end stage?

    No problem at all my heart goes out to you because I know exactly what you're going through and sounds as though we are similar in age. Such a hard time ahead but the release when it comes is a mixture of relief that dad is no longer suffering and is free from the living hell that is AD and...

    no known cause of death

    Dear overwhelmed I am so sorry to hear about your dad passing, such a terrible time for you and my heart goes out to you. My dad passed on 20 December, he had dementia for about 5-6 years but only diagnosed about 3 years ago. He had all the usual symptoms of forgetfulness and confusion...

    So here we are

    I am so sorry and send my condolences to you and your family. It really is the hardest time and I have had people say to me "at least you expected it, you could prepare" whilst you can prepare in the respect that you know the only way out is the passing, nothing prepares you for the emptiness...

    Is this the end stage?

    I'm so sorry to read this and it certainly sounds as though the end may be near. Very similar to my own dad who eventually passed away on the 20 December after 5 months of being in a MHU. Make sure the CH have plans to keep him comfortable during his final days, I am sure they have discussed...

    Is this the end?

    I'm so sorry to hear of your pain and for your poor poor dad he must be so frightened and have no idea what is going on. I would agree with everyone above in that you need to have that honest and definite conversation with his doctor about your dad. It's heartbreaking I know, I've literally...
