My mum who will be 95 in the summer is in a care home for last three years, has az, probably now about 7 years. She is deaf, blind, doubly incontinent, can't get out of a chair without help, only just about shuffle, walks with a walker and a minder. No longer knows the family. Seemed to have a stutter which got worse as day progresses, now this is constant, was having 'crazy' nonsense conversations with herself in this stutter, to the point she was disrupting other residents, we are told this goes on most of the time now. Does the stutter and the rest mean the brain is shutting down. Would appreciate any opinions. It's a sad sad situation, this is an existence not a life.
