She is entering the latter stages of dementia and has already lost so much cognitive ability.
Even with all the research and focus on Alzheimer’s, there is no cure and not even effective treatment or drugs that will slow the progression of this elusive disease.
If anyone knows how tragic Alzheimer’s can be, it is my mother.
She lovingly cared for my dad — who also had the disease — at home for many years.
However, I believe individuals will eventually have more control over how and when they die, including decisions of how long to be kept alive with severe dementia. Until then, I keep praying — just in case there is a higher power. I pray every single day and some days I get so angry and resentful that she is still alive, she did not make our lives happy when she was all there so to have to quit 2 jobs to take care of her and her affairs has put a bad taste in my mouth and I just want to bury her and be done with it all.
I thought when my parents died I will be able to enjoy the rest of my life instead I am the POA STUCK taking care of a woman I resent and can’t stand some days and like you my Mom is 92 in good physical health but mentally GONE, she always had mental issues, I will never understand why this woman is still alive?
I’ve questioned her before as to why they don’t consider a home (before he was placed in the rehab last week) and she breaks down and says I don’t get to ask questions since I moved out of their house 6 years ago. He always told me he never wanted to suffer when it was his time. They even asked me to pray for him to “bounce back” which, put lightly, caused me to snap.
Before my dad showed signs of memory loss, Mummy had been the primary caregiver for her own mother who had some form of dementia.
Then, she managed the care of her brother, a lifelong bachelor, who had probable Alzheimer’s.
Instead of a magical cure, I pray for an end to my mother’s life. Ironically, Mummy, as her family often calls her, is in remarkable physical health.
At age 92, she takes few medications and is ambulatory.
When I do pray, it is always about my mother who is living with Alzheimer’s disease.
