Hello, and thanks for listening. My poor grandmother is still clinging to life and will be 102 in November. She has been on Seroquel, and they recently upped her dose. She tried to get out of bed and fell and hit her head, so I think they are trying to prevent her from walking.
My mom says the last two times she has gone to visit she has been completely unresponsive. She sits in an arm chair, and won't open her eyes or communicate. It's as if she's been drugged.
I'm not sure what I'm asking. Is the dose of Seroquel too high? Is this the beginning of the end? She was still walking with a walker until they upped the dose.
Thanks in advance. I put this under Dementia topic because she doesn't recognize my mom anymore - thinks she is her sister - and stopped speaking English.
Good heavens....you know that no one lives forever, right?
Her unresponsiveness may simply mean she is trying to die. Don't push her to do ANYTHING, much less have a chatty conversation. She is probably just lingering between this life and the next.
Maybe, at 102, she simply has nothing left to say. I'm not being rude, I just bet she's worn out.
