When I ask, she just shrugs. Mom had a stroke 4 yrs. ago which slurred her speech, slowed her step, and started limiting her short term memory. Now she seems to mix up everything and drs. say her dementia will go down hill faster now. What I'm wondering is if she is thinking about anything when she stares out the window or just into space. It's very sad to watch her just sitting there. It's getting harder to engage her with activities or even trying to get her remember something from the past. I'm hoping she's at least reliving some of her childhood and not just being an empty vessel. Does anybody know??
