I work full time from home, and she has lived with me for over 4 years. She is in the end stage of Alzheimer's. She is 100% disabled and on hospice for a year and 2 months. I hold my breath every morning when I go to get her up. I want her to be comfortable and safe and of course I don't "want" her to die. But I am reaching extreme anxiety levels here, always ready for the hammer to fall. Do they just slip away one day from this disease? Or do they die due to an illness, infection, etc? Is that "going peacefully in their sleep" line just a lie? If it is, at least I can relax and not be expecting it all the time. She has no infections, skin breakdowns, breathing problems. Her actual health as far as all that is great. She takes in fluids and pureed foods with some minor swallowing issues, but her intake is still relatively good. Thank you. This is the first time I've ever asked a question.
