My Mother is 95 years old, she will be 96 this week. We feel she is in the early stages of dementia. We are blessed to have had her with such a clear mind for so long. About 6 months ago after her baby brothers death we noticed the change/decline in her health. Very quiet, not wanting to eat, not wanting to drink water, not wanted to be left alone, tremors when holding items. She was an avid writer and reader, she has no interest in that at allow. She loved going out and talking on the telephone, she no longer has an interest in those things. She likes to stay at home and sit, and sleep, she seldon initiates conversation. She is on medication. I hired a sitter, and I also got her a life alert system. She is never alone. I filed for power of attorney last week. What is going on with her and what more can we do to make life more comfortable for her.
