Could my mam have had a stroke without us knowing? The last two or three times I've seen mam I've noticed that her left eye seems to be drooping. Today it seemed more noticeable. She was also extremely tired, and kept nodding off sitting at the kitchen table. In the last couple of weeks she has been suffering from double incontinence too. It's so very hard to know what is a progression of the dementia, or what could be some other problem. How can we find out whether she's had a stroke, and is there anything that can be done to help? If the incontinence problems are as a result of a stroke, is there any chance that this could improve, or is this is it now? Part of me doesn't want it to be a stroke, but another part is clutching at straws thinking that the incontinence, which is very distressing for dad to deal with, might get better in time.
