One of my aunts has vas dem. We found she recognised us and could speak to us almost right up to the end. A lot of what she said made no sense at the end,but some of it did.

She had a series of small strokes, but was able to move about and eat/drink by herself.

In the end,she suddenly was unable to walk,stopped eating,then stopped drinking. Auntie did not appear to be in any pain,and this final bit only took a month.

Obviously this varies a lot from person to person,but this aunts illness was much easier to cope with than her sister'. Her sister had a diagnosis of Alz disease.

Please try and take one day at a time,hoping things will not be too hard on you

I don't think it's much different from the final stage of Alzheimer's or other dementia.
My husband's final days seem to have followed a similar pattern to those of other sufferers mentioned her.
However, each person is different even if there are similarities.
