Yes these are sure signs of dementia. Went through the same thing with my mother in law, although my father in law was still alive at the time. She was this way for several years, and my father in law took over doing everything she use to do. She started sleeping, napping a lot and although she had been losing weight the past couple of years, she was losing it faster as she had almost no appetite. She fell out of bed one night and broke her thigh bone. Just as bad as breaking a hip. Came through surgery just fine, and was sent directly to a rehab facility, which was also a long term care facility. Her appetite never improved, and after 2 1/2 months she passed away, looking like someone from the Nazi death camps. It was awful to see her that way. I think people should die with dignity and be allowed to leave this earth when they know there is no hope for any quality of life.
