My mom has Dementia/Alzheimers, also several different Arthritis she spends most days in bed, she is mobile and can get around the house with a cane, we make sure she eats, otherwise she wouldn't. She sleeps alot and is not interested in doing anything, she is in constant pain. She gets easily agitated and acusses us of stealing from her but Dr says thats part of the dementia. If I do not bsthe her and keep her clean she would not do it herself. It seems to me she is just giving up and no longer wants to be around, and she has said that before. We are her caretakers and she is very well taken care of, but it seems like she is just going downhill and I'm wondering is this a sign of the end being near? What are signs of the end nearing and when do I call hospice to help? Its so very sad and hard to watch my mom who was such a vibrant on the go mom who was always there for us, just dwindle away. If anybody could give me any advice or signs to look for, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you and God Bless.
