CP and aging - how can I support my mum?
My mum's now 68-years-old and seems to be detoriating fast. Perhaps it is because I am currently living at home so I am with her a lot more but she is suffering increased pain in her arm and shoulder from degenerative arthiritis but more than that she is so drowsy now - even in the middle of the day she sleeps in her chair as if she were in a care home. When she talks she even sounds drowsy. I've never seen her like this before and am not sure what to do. She has not changed medication recently, diet, she is not unwell (apart from a cough that she's just had the past week). I don't know what to do.
