If so, what can we do? We have tried everything in the Dementia books, and the information I've found online. My grandmother, who is 93, is getting weaker and can barely walk at this point, we give her Ensure plus to keep her sustained. She's lost quite a bit of weight and I'm starting to worry, whenever we take her to the doctor she acts perfectly fine and the doctor just ignores what we're saying. Every article I've read regarding this says that this is a way for the patient to "let go" and I seriously doubt that is what she is doing, she's extremely clingy to us and is constantly telling us she doesn't want to die, I'm at my wits end and I just want to help her to be and stay healthy.
