My mother is stage 7 Alzheimer's. She went from a 5 to a 7 after a head injury in March. I'm scared.

Dear wcoastdeb,
I can understand how a sudden change in your mom's Alzheimer's would be scary for you. Would you want to talk to a counselor at the "Alzheimer's Association" who are available 24/7? If so, their number is 1-800-279-3900. The first person who answers the phone, gets a basic idea of what your situation is and if a counselor is available at that moment, they can connect you. If there isn't one available, they will take your phone number and the counselor will return your call. I have had that happen a couple of times but, they have always called back that same day! I've called them many times over the past four months after my mom nearly died from COVID. She is in the last stages of Alzheimer's at 95 years old. Take care and let us know how things are going!

Where is your Mum living? Have you contacted hospice? Is there a care facility that could give you respite, if she is in your home?

You cannot change Mum's situation and perhaps as he ALZ has advanced she may not be fully aware of her situation. Are you getting support?
