My Dad is 84 and now just entering stage 6. I'm wondering what other people have observed about how long stage 6 and stage 7 last typically.
thanks:)

Alzheimer's progression varies from person to person and depends a lot on whether or not they have other maladies. And of course stage 6 has subsets:
6a : unable to choose appropriate clothing
6b: unable to bathe independently
6c:unable to toilet independently
6d: urinary incontinence
6e: fecal incontinence
Stage 7:
7a: limited speech, fewer words
7b: one word replies
7c: loss of ambulation
7d: unable to sit up independently
7e: unable to smile
7f: unable to pick up head.
So the key question is how long did it take to get to stage 6?
If it was decades, progression is slow.
If it was months, progression is rapid and will likely progress quickly.
