This Drac has been in my house for ~10 years and has never been fully formed but it did have leaves at the top until the past 6 months. They started dying so I cut them off, hoping it would bloom again. This is their state right now. Can anyone tell if it's all the way gone or can it be saved?

Cut it down to the green stems and be patient. Your plant may recover but it will take awhile.

In the mean time, try to figure out why your plant is unhappy. Dracaena require well draining soil (keep the soil moist but don't let it become soggy), and bright indirect light.

Has the soil been changed since you have had this plant?

No. Should I re-pot it?

If you haven't changed the soil in 10 years, its time.
