Zero.. He is past his life span. Ask his MD for a prognosis. Determining factors include any other health problems-- heart/kidney/lungs/etc and what stage he is in. If he declined slowly for four years to stage 4, he might decline slowly another three to stage 7. But if he has enlarged heart or A-fib or a history of stroke, those things could get him first. Bear in mind when planning that the cost of care goes up significantly when he becomes hallucinogenic or bedridden. Like double or triple.
