This is my first visit to this site so let me introduce myself.
I look after my husband who has Parkinson's disease with lewy body dementia also prostate cancer diabetes and kidney disease.i do not have outside help as he is erratic and unpredictable with his daily care.he is beginning to get infections urine and chest and these can cause him to fall.when he falls he cannot mentally or physically get up and I have to call an ambulance.The paramedics are brilliant with him but they should not be being called out for this but I don't know what else to do.
He has a dementia buddy who is great and he goes one day a week to a club for people with dementia. The trouble is getting him to go,he enjoys it when he is there but getting him up and ready is getting increasingly more difficult.he is very verbally aggressive at times but when he is with other people he is sweetness and light.he is very inappropriate in his communications with women in particular.
I am not complaining I would not like him to be cared for by strangers but it is hard at times.
We have a dog who he adores but I have to watch what he feeds her as he has a very sweet tooth and he likes her to have some of what he is eating luckily she doesn't have a sweet tooth.
I think that is enough from me at the moment thanks
