I suspect this is happening, what can I do to comfort her? Mom is last stage Dementia. Bedbound, no longer walks,barely speaks, I do 100% of everything for her now. There has been some episodes lately that I question. On Thanksgiving she was doing the same condition wise. Within a hour, I honestly thought she'd past. Here breaths were very shallow and long pauses in between. She was cold as ice, and white as a ghost. She almost had a greyish look to her. Her face was severely drawn with her eyes half open. I tried to arouse her but she "wasn't there" She was limp, her arms moved freely even though she is normally contracted. and I tried to stimulate her pupils with a light but they were in a fixed state. I was going to call hospice nurse but really what would they do? To make a long night short, By morning she was better but more restless. This was really weird just trying to figure it out. There was no changes in medications lately just the same old, same old.
