Default Atypical Parksinsons/General Encephalopathy

About a year ago my mom (just turned 70) was walking, talking & enjoying time with friends (in an assisted living facility). Since then she has lost the ability to speak, walk, feed herself or any activity at all. She is in a wheelchair, transferred by a lift from bed to wheelchair & back & living in a private residence with around the clock nurses. Neurologist has said she has Atypical Parkinsons (not sure which one) & general Encephalopathy (again nothing specific) through all of the testing. I am always looking for answers or any suggestions to care for her better & keep her comfortable. She currently is only taking carbidopa levodopa. She has become rigid & this has helped. Her feet have turned inward & it looks/seems very uncomfortable. At this point we have been told to just keep her comfortable & no further plans for any type of treatments or solutions.
