    Help and advice - looking for breakthrough treatment

    My Mother, 86-years old, was first diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011. She has also experienced multiple mini-strokes over these years, and seizures since 2014. On appropriate medication all along, and doing ok. Then in Aug-2016, experienced several episodes of seizure followed by sharp cognitive decline. In Oct-2016, was admitted to the hospital with high BP and a low level of consciousness. Since then, she has hardly been able to speak or interact, always on feeding tube (8 months on nasal then 2 months on PEG), and her weight has steadily declined along with the ability to sit or stand on her own. Vitals generally under control.

    What options may be available to help improve her cognition, gain weight and strength? Would also would like to know what medicines might be helpful at this stage? Also any doctor suggestions in Mumbai, India?
