My Mum is now in the final stage of the end stage of Altzheimer's, and we've been told it's a matter of weeks before she dies. My dad (who is 88 and her carer at home) seemed to have accpeted that this was the end and began thinking of ways of making mum more comfortable. However, i spoke to him last night and he's filled out her passport renewal forms because he wants to take her on holiday. She's entirely bed bound, doesn't speak and eats intermittently. He seems to think that if he tries hard enough she will recover. It's heartbreaking. Does anyone else have any similar sort of experience?
