My grandma is in a home for dementia patients. She can feed herself,go to the bathroom,but needs help bathing,and has to have a nurse make sure she takes her meds,and the nurse does her blood sugar and injections. She's getting depressed because she doesn't understand why she can't go home. Her kidneys are failing rapidly and the doc says no to living with family. My mom and aunt would freak out if my grandma died while in their care anyway. Do you think she should be told of her demise? Hospice sees her almost everyday,but no one has told her who these folks are. I think if she was able to realize that the end was near,she could get ready instead of hoping that she is going back home soon. Everyone keeps telling her she has to stay until she gets a little better. Bad idea IMO.

No, I would NOT tell her. Let her enjoy her final days and tell her that you love her and want only her happiness. G-d Bless!
