Is my loved one with Alzheimer’s disease suffering emotionally?
A patient in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease is unlikely to be aware of her state, and therefore is not suffering emotionally. Sometimes occasional moments of lucidity can occur in such a patient, though this is rare. If your loved one does ever become lucid enough to become aware of her condition, she most likely would also be able to communicate with you that time.
