Hi everyone. Althouh i've been watching this forum for a while. I've only just found the courage to participate. My Mum has been suffering from Alzheimer's for a while now, and has gradually deteriated. She is now in hospital,and has been for the last six weeks. She sleeps most of the time, can't communicate, and hardly eats at all, she is painfully thin. But thankfully doesn't appear to be in pain. Some in my family seem to try to shut it all out,(almost ignore it). I'm not judging them, but i prefer to face it head on (If i can). I read the posts on here so that hopefully learn what to expect in the future. So to the hard part of this post, From what i describe about my mother's condition, Does it appear that she is nearing the end? That was so hard to say. Thank you.
