My mother is in the end stage of Alzheimer's. I have the choice. To remember her as she was the last time I saw her on my 45th birthday 2 years ago. Or at some point to go see her now. Completely demented and slumped over in a wheelchair, barely able to talk and unable to recognize me. I have struggled over this. My twin brother has seen her. He recommends I go. My older brother refused to see her for 2 years and just changed his mind and is going to see her this weekend. I realize it is strictly personal but I just wanted some feedback or some personal experiences some of you might have had with this in your family before I make my decision. My mother and I weren't close. She was very cold, rejecting and unloving to me my entire life. She never understood my bipolar disorder. I have long since forgiven her for that. Prior to the onset of Alzheimer's in fact. But it nevertheless plays a role. Please add comments.
