Mother is actually doing better at times with hospice care at her nursing home. The last "family" conference (me) was about putting her on hospice to get her additional attention and hence, mental stimulation. Had no idea it would work so well and so soon. With Lewy Bodies dimentia, she will never get better and only continue to go downhill. With the added help, I find mother out in the social area of her wing more often and much more aware of what's going on. Last visit, she even asked about some relatives. This is no cure, but making her days better for her. There continue to be times of passing consciousness but much less. Hospice doesn't mean the end, but a more pleasant existence. linda

That's wonderful ! You have such a great attitude. It's about giving your mom the dignity she deserves and finding some joy in those "window of opportunity" moments that come and go. Grab them ! All we have is this moment because no one of us REALLY knows what is coming next.
