Having read a article on 'end of life rallying' would that be happening to our 99 yr old mum with dementia who last week slept 7 days deeply in bed (not her to do that) with hardly any food or drink? Friday evening BP shot up to 180/108..we expected it to drop?! Yesterday brother in law found her carers trying to keep up with her eating for England sat in her chair again as she was talking again and demanding! She is non mobile, sits in chair usually in her lounge in her own house from 6.45am - 8.30pm carers go in 6 x daily. Is alone at night as refused any CHC monies for paying for night care (refused when at a CHC meeting with local NHS group last Dec). Has been wanting to go to dad for at least 5 years now and no quality of life. It's very distressing for us as a family and a rollercoaster of emotions when all we pray is for mum to find peace at last. Thanks.
