Voice a little slurry. Lost 50 pounds. Does not want to bathe or eat. She lives with my dad with Dementia as well. I live far away. They have almost full time care. Does this sound like final stage? She was diagnosed 1 year ago with Alzheimer's but refused all treatment. She was an alcoholic as well as my dad but got them to stop drinking 2 months ago.

Sorry you're parents are in such rough shape.

Knowing nothing about their history, I do wonder if she'd over-medicated, which might be causing the extreme sleepiness? Are you able to talk to her doctor?

Amazing that you got them to stop drinking!

She needs to be evaluated. She may have had a stroke. Have the AL send her to the hospital for testing.

Well, it doesn't sound GOOD, if that's what you're asking.

Nobody has a timeline for EOL behavior. Maybe it's time for you to step in a little more closely and have their basic health and needs evaluated. Sometimes. boots on the ground is the best way to get a handle on what's going on.

Good Luck.
