Hello, I sent an email to a website that offered to answer questions, but they did not really give an answer at all. I know it is very difficult to as every patient is different, I am going to just paste the email here, if anyone knows can you please respond? thanks Here goes - My mum is 57 years old, she has had alzheimers disease for 11 years now, well that is as far back as we can remember the symptoms starting. She has passed the stage of forgetting and being confused. She now cannot do anything, she does not understand anything, she cannot speak and she very rarely responds to her name being called. She needs assistance to walk as she does not seem to know to put one foot in front of the other. She is however eating well and eats solids. The doctor checked her heart, lungs etc and all that is absolutely fine. My question is what happens from here? What other changes in her can happen? It does not seem to be able to get worse now. It is at it's worst. I know eventually we will probably have to puree her food but what else happens when it comes to this stage? What else happens before she dies? Is there anyway of us knowing that her time is near?
