Hello all. Feeling totally overwhelmed and lost. Mum was diagnosed 7 years ago with Alzheimer's. She's 81, in hospital at the moment and no-one can tell us anything about her prognosis. We're currently appealing a CHC decision (She was refused), looking at long term care, and are feeling utterly lost in the process. When people describe Mum's condition, health professionals say 'Could be months, could be years'. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? We love our Mum dearly but watching her disappear is part of our lives now-heartbreakingly so of course-but how long does she have to live like this? I am sure I am not alone in thinking this-what are people's experiences of living with the unknown, the 'could be months, years' ? Thank you.
