Only Sleeping [Jul. 25th, 2018|04:48 pm]
Tony Grist
  •  My mother spends most of her time asleep. The carers get her out of bed mid-morning and put her back again early evening. She spends the first part of her short day dozing in a chair in the dining room and the second part dozing in a chair in the living room. 

She eats and drinks- but has to be prompted to do so. "Don't forget you have a cup of tea," is something we say several times every morning. "I haven't forgotten" she replies, only of course she had.

I don't know if this can result from the progressing state of dementia - you know, from the progressing of nerve cell degeneration. A body substance which is attacked by something still remains a substance attacked by something... It's not like in a person which doesn't have to deal with this.

Of course, these days it can also have to do with the great heat that resides everywhere over Europe...

It's a dementia- a very slow process of deterioration that's been going on for years.
