My mum has just been given 43/100 on the ACE111 and a prescription for Donepezil. She is 83, lives alone can wash and dress herself and keeps the house fairly clean, although out of date food is put in cupboards and the microwave! She doesn't eat very much, gets confused as to the days, forgets who visited her and where she has been within a couple of hours. She gets very very upset at the thought of a carer and is adamant that she will not leave her home, constantly saying that she wants to die at home. She refuses to accept that there is anything wrong with her memory, repeating that she is 83 and it's just old age. I don't want her to go into a home, as she will be in misery but then again , I don't want her to have an accident. I am hoping that she can stay at home until she doesn't know where she is and then move her but I have no idea when that would be and, in the meantime, I'm just dazed and stupified by it all. is she very bad or is it reasonable to hope that she can keep going at home without a carer? Thank you.
