My mum has lewy body dementia and parkinsons is a major part of it. My mum is very shaky and her balance is not great, she has fallen over at home. The parkinsons side seems much worse than the confusion and forgetfulness side of the dementia. My dad who cares for her is thinking of moving to sheltered housing sooner rather than later. He thinks it will be easier in the long run as there will be help on hand if needed especially if he needed to pop out he would know that mum is ok. Its hard for my dad aswell as my mum, everytime i see him he looks tired and bedraggled but there are people around him who love him and mum including me. Sorry to ramble on.
