Hi. How will I know when Mom is at the end stages? The home say she is in late stages. She no longer walks, has to be hoisted, she does not talk. Has to be fed pureed food, which she is not eating much of. Her drinks are thickened as she does not swallow. She goes into deep sleeps and can't be woken up. When she goes to bed she sleeps in the foetal position, which apparently is normal in late stages. I cant see how this can get any worse Any advice would be appreciated please. Trying to prepare myself.
