motherof5, it is not uncommon for a Hospice patient to rally. It might be long term, or short term. We never know. Hospice sees this all the time. You could ask for their experiences with rallying.

Both my parents rallied while on Hospice. Mom started eating again for a couple of days, but then she stopped, went back into her coma state. She was in last stage dementia caused by a serious fall.

My Dad wanted to get out of bed, eat, watch TV, and was talking to everyone. That last about 2 or 3 days, then he went back into his coma-like state. Dad had in early dementia but he also had aspiration pneumonia.

Both my parents were in their mid to late 90's.

Motheroffive, yes everyone is different. My mom was just accepted for hospice care ths past week. She was diagnosed eleven years ago. For some the dementia journey is slow and lasts many years (I have heard on this site up to twenty), others are very fast a few years or less. I think my mom's journey is near it's end, but won't know for sure until it is done. I wish there were a way to predict or even an educated guess, but it is very different for everyone, too many factors come into play.

Yes, your mom may improve to a point that she may be discharged from hospice. Time will tell. It is a helpless feeling, isn't it?

I think it is not unusual for a person near death to have a brief rally. My husband did.
