My mom is 99 years old and has Alzheimer's (or dementia or whatever). (Physically relatively healthy.) Aside from all the other issues, she knows that there's something wrong with her. She complains "My brain is sick." and she wants to know when she'll get better. Mostly what she's aware of is her short-term memory loss. I'm wondering what the progression of this self-awareness is. Will she reach a point when she doesn't even realize there's anything wrong? Seems to me, that it will be easier on her if she reaches a point when she doesn't even know.
