i'm sorry.

are you close to where she is?

can you at least see her often- or if not close talk to her on the phone.

I have had people go before I can say what I wanted to to them.

don't be one of those people... spend as much time with her as you can

I'm 200ish miles away from her so can only go down there when I can get time off work, when she was able to talk on the phone I'd phone her up and she'd phone me, since moving to the care home though she's found it harder to communicate so talking on the phone isn't a option any more, her brain jumps around too much so she can't really hold a phone conversation any more

It is so sad when they get to that point in life. Visit when you can.. that is all you can do. She is getting the best care where she is & being kept comfortable.

My heart goes out to you as I know family losses are difficult

My heart goes out to you Whisper

You sound like in a similar place as me with my own grandmother with distance, phone communication ceased being an option, and pallative care-which over here it's called assisted living.

My grandma's been visited by my brother today as well, she's back in the care home but in bed and on oxygen but she's able to recognise people now, they're basically keeping her comfortable for the rest of her life cause they can't do anything more for her now.

I understand. I lost my mother in February at age 90 and the docs said they couldn't do anything for her in the end. I stayed with her in the hospital as much as I can before she passed.
