Hi all Dad was diagnosed about a year ago, is on Aricept and last September was diagnosed as being depressed and put on anti-depresants (not sure which) problem is the last few weeks he has been prone to falling and tripping. I think this is partly due to the way he shuffles along now but our worry is he becomes disorientated in the night and may fall down the stairs.He is due a review next wek with his consultant. Trouble is Mum can't leve him alone now and we are waiting for the referal to social services to come thru with help,when his CPN referred him about 2 months ago. I have contacted local sitting services too but is this the shape of things to come, it's so sad to see his deteriorate. Is there anyone else out there with a relative with DLB who suffers the same symptoms including the hallucinations of children and animals?
