Hello Everybody , Was not sure was going to start this or not but feel a need too ! , live near Parents & Dad has Mild / Moderate Dementia & even Pre Dementia Dad has all ways been slightly impatient : hates long queas etc & also waiting to cross the Road in Safety ! The other day was in Town with Mum & Dad at a Green Man Crossing ( very busy road ) The" Man" was "On Red " & Dad stepped off the Kerb just as a Car came Dad "jumped back onto the kerb " & was cross he could not beat the Car & that ended up with me being Cross with Dad ! ( was/am because the Year before he was diagnosed he had some sort of accident when walking (on his own) Home & am 99 per cent SURE he was nearly run over ( he had nasty graze / bad bruises under his Chin he was in Shock ? Mum called it a "Black Out " but am not so sure )
Realize cannot stop Dad doing this ( he goes to the paper Shop on his own etc , etc ) & guess hes not the only person that does it & its NOT so much the Dementia but the fact he is impatient ! ...... My real question is if it happends again whats the best way of ME coping with it ? Is it best to say nothing ? & try & carry on as normal ?
Thank you for your help ( sorry for long ramble ! )
Love Grove x P S .... Dad is NOT all ways like this crossing the Road ! & realize me being cross with Dad does NOT help Dad
