Can this living hell continue? My mother, now aged 80, has deteriorated a lot in the last couple of months. She can hardly see now, and a recent test revealed nothing more can be done, her eyes have just ceased to function. She can hardly walk, stumbling a few steps and has had a number of falls. She is doubly incontinent most of the time although she occasionlly remembers she never makes it to the toilet. She seems to now be pretty deaf too. She wont really eat unless someone sits and coaxes her even then it is a few mouthfulls no more. She is totally and completely confused asking the same questions over and over and over.AND OVER. When she isnt doing that she talks rubbish which makes no sense and then gets really aggresive when people dont understand what she means. She was always a difficult person and now I feel I just cant bear to even see her in this state at all. And I wonder if she would know or care if I stopped seeing her as she never seems to remeber she saw me the day before (Ive been visiting daily for the last week) Will she soon just slip into final stage and be unaware of anything or will she stay here like this which I suppose is a 6 for years?
