My great-grandma was diagnosed with vascular dementia 3 years ago now, since Monday she as been very vacant, not eating or drinking. Today we've spoke to one of the care home assistants who said she's now having 'assisted feeding and drinking' my grandma (my great grandma's daughter) seems to think it's the chest infection and uti she has got that's causing this blankness she as got. Me on the other hand I'm not too sure. It's shocking to see she's just laid in her bed, staring at nothing she trys to talk but can't, she's sick when we try give her fluid etc. She can't be taken to the toilet as she's too weak. Is this nearing the end? I'm not sure or should I say we were not sure what we should expect?
