Hello everyone I am struggling to understand what is happening to my mum after I was told by her GP she was end of life. She is late stage dementia after 6 years, 2 years of which she has been in a care home. She has been in bed for the past 6 weeks, mostly unresponsive but still eating and drinking when prompted by her carers. We were supposed to go on holiday 2 weeks ago but cancelled this dreading the worst however today when I visited, she was out of bed, dressed and sitting up in her wheelchair and although she has no idea who I am, did respond in her own way. Has anyone experienced this with their loved one? I am totally gobsmacked as I have been trying to get my head around losing her and expected this would be days not weeks or even months. Her GP says this sometimes does happen but how can someone be end of life when they have actually improved? I feel I am on a permanent rollercoaster!
