I was recommended to this forum by a Cruse pre-bereavement counsellor. My husband has advanced dementia and is nearing the end of his life, being completely immobile since Christmas. He is 66. He was diagnosed in 2005 and I cared for him at home until 3 years ago when it became unmanageable. Since then, he has deteriorated more rapidly. He has no communication at all and shows no awareness of anyone or anything around him. This has been the case for about 9 months. I feel so sad.
