What is the life expectancy of person in 'severe' stage of Alzheimer's disease?
It is almost impossible to determine life expectancy in somebody with severe Alzheimer's disease. It is because people do not die of Alzheimer's disease itself, but of complications, most often pneumonia or another infection. It is difficult to predict when they will get an infection and if they get it, if they will recover from it. It is possible to predict if somebody will die in a week but longer prediction is very inaccurate.
