Hi Tink,

We are sorry to read that your Dad is struggling at the moment.

It may be a good idea if your Dad gives you consent to speak with his GP, and you could let them know that you are concerned about his legs, his mobility and his risk of falls. You can also discuss with them your dad's low mood.

The GP is then best placed to organise assessments for your Dad and see if he can get any useful equipment to help him from occupational therapy. They can also assess your Dad for any nursing or care needs.

We hope that is helpful and wish you well,
