Hello my name is Trish. I'm struggling with not knowing how long my mother will live with her moderate dementia. My brother has asked me to move back home with mom. So I resigned my position and moved from the country and am now staying with mom taking care of her. This has been very difficult for me as I had a very nice place and great life. I feel like my life is over and have been crying alot. I don't want to see my mom in a nursing home but I also need to have my life. I've decided to stay but will take time for self care and go back home every so often for two weeks. My mother has diabetes, High blood pressure, and cholesterol issues of which she is currently on medication for all including meds for her moderate dementia. Can any one tell Mr how long she will survive.

Sorry about your mom, and she is lucky to have you for a daughter. I recommend you repost this on the caregiver section in order to get more answers from those in a similar situation as yourself.
