My husband (82) has had alz + vasc dem for 6 years but is managing well. He is a bit active at night but he can dress himself, go bowling and go to church. Last week he had a fall (1st) and became weak which our local physio thinks is a small stroke. He was sent to A&E and stayed in a night but has no treatment. Now he is very weak and anxious so when I tried to shop today he couldn't walk round the store and was afraid to be alone in the car. I hope he will get better but as a precaution I applied on the phone for a blue badge. The lady kept asking me how far he could walk on a football pitch and I assured her that he wouldn't even get on the pitch! The mixture of dementia and weakness means he is like a three year old who one couldn't leave alone in the car for safety reasons. Nor could I leave him alone at home. Has anyone else met this situation? And can you offer any suggestions of help?
