My Grandmother has been in a NH for almost 4 months now and has declined steadily. When I go to visit her it's hit or miss as to what she is going to be like. Somedays she is somewhat clear headed and able to talk to me directly but still will think she is at home or it's the first day at the NH. But most days she is competely broken from reality. Seeing and having conversations with people who aren't there. She says she's walking around a large beautiful house. She can't get out of bed and refuses to eat always saying she isn't hungry or "I just ate". The NH is suggesting Hospice care for her and all the info they have given me basically says she is at the final stages of life. I just don't understand. Could this be real? It breaks my heart that she is like this, it's hard to think. I've taken care of her for 6 years till she could not longer get out of bed on her own and we had to put her into a NH cuz I could not take care of her mentally or physically any longer. I have a 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter. I love her so much and we've had rough times but she was my bestfriend too. I'm just confused and scared. Please help. Part of me thinks she is having a psychotic break and just needs meds. She is 82.
