My OH has had vascular dementia and ? mixed dementia for just over 2 years, he hasn't been too bad in himself really just difficulty being able to work things out and not being able to make choices or make devisions, at times he's been very quick witted, like quiz shows. I have seen a big change the last coup.e of months though with his mobility and speech and not sure if it's his dementia or something else, his GP doesn't seem very bother. He is now having great difficulty with getting about, walking and getting very tired. We used to be big walkers going for long walks but now he can only walk couple of yards and he's wobbly and .oses his balance even though he now uses a walking stick he leans on me for support and he's had a few falls when it's been hard to get him up, even indoors the last few days he's been very unsteady on his feet, he walks very very slowly, also at times his speech is a bit slurred not all the time but now and then, he also gets very tired a lot of the time. Can someone tell me if this is a progression of the VD. He has had heart scan as the GP thought he might have heart failure but that was all OK. It's mainly his inability to walk very far and not getting about the house or out of a chair very well that's the main worry.
