End stage experience

End stage experience

I'm curious...when people say the loved one is in end stages of alz, what is the loved one experiencing? I wonder how much difference there is between different people.

Our experience was a 10+ year journey with my mom and by the last few weeks she was unable to walk, more incontinent, wasn't eating as much, having a hard time speaking, asked the same question literally every 2min and of course became waaaaaay more agitated than usual. It was a gradual decline but towards the end it was as though all symptoms were on fast fwd.

I think all people are different. But from what i have seen of end stage alz the person doesn't really have a clue what is happening.

@A myALZteam Member My mother does not understand her disease at all. She still thinks she can be at home and live by herself. She is never happy though, she just always wants to go home. However, her sleeping has increased quite a bit but she is still able to stay in her assisted living suite. All with basically no health problems. Thanks for your input, much appreciated

@A myALZteam Member please excuse the typos. My Mom has 2 roomates that have passed away since May 2016. They both had the symptoms I mentioned.
