I have heard of dementia patients living for 20years although believe it's rare. I can't say any one being almost normal? Only going on residents at my late husband's nursing home, in that they all declined, some much more slowly than others.
Can you have a chat to the Alzheimer's society?
I'm fed up too. Although I have my bubble family and see them regularly. Thank goodness. I was beginning to adjust to losing hubby, and made a plan to go away, just for 2days.

Hello and welcome Dementia is very cruel. My late husband had Vascular dementia and other health issues. Was in a nursing home. He had a time of wanting to be home, but didn't know our address!

He said we will go their for our anniversary. Of course I agreed, knowing it would never be. Still think of it often. I thought he ha...
I'm now in a better position than lots. However, my patience is at an all time low. I'm not an impatient person. Has to muster up every scrap of patience when my husband became ill. Anything can wind me up at the moment.
They possibly will imply that your mum's needs are now managed. Tried that with my late hubby. Look carefully and work out what needs aren't managed completely, like sudden aggression, etc.
