Sorry this has inflicted your family too. Just know she would like to be her old self too but can't. It becomes a slow mourning process. Tell her how much you enjoy talking with her. She will appreciate it. Mom's still have their inner sensory for a while after the decline starts.

I am so sorry you are in this position. It can definitely be overwhelming and sad. Try focusing on the positive. Is she still somewhat mobile? Can she still play games? Perhaps pick a game to play together or even sit and enjoy a show together. Many nursing homes have places where people can gather. I helps to get her out of her room. If you feel codependent with your parent, you may want to lookup books on codependency.
