My stepmother lives in Bflo and I'm in Fl. so I only get to see her a couple times a year. My father died 14 yrs ago and my SM was then living with her sister. They were very close and then her sister died suddenly. I hadn't noticed any symptoms during the short visit I last had with her and then found out several months later that she had dementia and was in the hospital for a few months and no one notified the family. The county now has guardianship and will not tell anyone anything about how she is being treated or her condition. There's a lot I'd like to ask about that, but, another time. I just wondered about how suddenly it seemed to happen. Thanks so much for any thoughts.
