We went to see Dad again in hospital today, I noticed on Friday that his speech was slurred a bit and told the clinical care staff on the ward who said they would make a note and keep an eye on him. I noticed today that his speech was still slurred, in fact, a little worse, so I mentioned it again this time to the ward registered nurse who said that it was probably because Dad had been up half the night wandering and had only got brief amounts of sleep and was exhausted! He has often been up and down all night and not settling until 1 or 2 a.m. but we have never noticed slurred speech before so I told her that. She said they would ring us if they were concerned. I do not know anyone else personally well enough who has vascular dementia, so is slurred speech part of the condition?
