I have been the primary caregiver to my mil for 12 years. She was diagnosed with dementia after suffering a global hypoxic event due to an allegic reaction. She has always relied on me for complete care. She will has both long and short term memory issues. Limited vocabulary. Cannot dress or bathe herself. Is incontinent of both bladder and bowel. Will not change or clean herself. About a year ago she had a tia stroke. She has become increasingly clumsy, often bumping into walls or falling. She refuses to use h her walker or forgets she even has it. Over the last month she has grown increasingly weak. So much so that her last bath required 2 of us to get her out of the tub. She's developed a cough now and seems short of breath. She is sleeping 20+ hours a day. In the last 3 days she has only drank maybe 2 quarts and eaten nothing. If shes not asleep shes sitting with her elbows on her knees and her head down in her hands. Communication is almost non existent as all she says is ok but she denies being hungry or in pain. we do have guardianship and have decided not to interfere with the dying process. She's suffered for so many years already. Im doing my best to make sure shes kept clean and comfortable. Just curious if it sounds like the end is near and what kind of time frame we might be looking at.
