My Mum was 90 in October & has been in our local nursing home for 5 years now. The last few months she is sleeping a lot & has lost weight. Sadly, she doesn't have any conversation anymore & just sits in her chair. She was about 9 & a half stone when she went into the Nursing home. When I saw her this morning, she was weighed by a carer & is now 7 & a half stone. The nurse said, she's eating very little, as sleeping so much. The carers are now having to feed her & told me she only has a few mouthfuls.It's so hard to see her going downhill. I'm sure all daughters' & sons', feel the same with their Mum's or Dad's, in the same situation. I know what you are all going through. Is this the final stages of Alzheimers?
