My husband has vascular dementia and therefore has no memory of the past and his speech and understanding are poor to non existent. He has just gone into a care ward and I am at a loss to know what to do when I visit each day. He becomes distressed if I try to look at photos. or books. At home we used to take short walks or listen to music - but this was becoming increasingly difficult. At the moment I usually just take a little food and sit with him. When he is settled I hope to be able to take him out for a short walk, but can't risk it at the moment as his behaviour is very unpredictable. I feel he should be having more physical activities, but I am at a loss. Anyone got any suggestions?
