Hi, Mum is in the last stages of AD. She has difficulty swallowing and is on a liquid diet. Yesterday, we spent all day in A&E as she had a fall and a UTI. Sometimes she seems very lucid, the majority of the time she is in a trance like state, eyes half open. She has lost 8kgs in the last 2 months and most of the time refuses, food, drink and medication. Her care home is going to try Multi Sensory Therapy. Has anyone out there had any experience of this type of therapy helping their loved one? Although, I'm happy for mum to give it a go I'm a bit worried that it may frighten her. She does not have any challenging behaviour but is very agitated and often suffers from jerking limbs which I believe could be down to anxiety. I don't want to deny her any type of therapy that may be beneficial but then again I've been told that this therapy is quite new. Don't know what to think really. Does anyone have any opinion or ideas.
