Thanks Mimi. I was thinking the same thing as it seems in this situation Gran is deteriorating quickly whereas my paternal grandparent did not. She of course did not have a stroke either hence the question. I realize that Alzheimer's reacts on persons differently and at different times.
I cannot recall who had posted it however I did see something the other day on here with the stages of Alzheimer's and it got me questioning things like, where are we now and what can we expect. Does that sound silly? I was also wondering about Gran's stage because of what is actually happening with her now and if it is the Alzheimer's that is doing it or if it is the stroke or the combination.
The situation is very difficult as she has no control over her bladder or fecal. She now is using adult diapers and has been for quite some time.
