my husband diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 6 years ago has been in a Care home for a year. Approximately 2 months ago he developed a fear of sitting on the toilet. He panics and fights any attempts to coax or help him. He refuses to bend his legs or move backwards. They tried a raised toilet seat. He now has a Mowbray which has a seat with a frame round. Nothing is working at the moment. Is this fairly common in later stage?
