For issues specific to caring for someone with dementia.
Hi All,

Mum keeps having times when she feels ill and can't seem to make her body work she comes over all breathless and can hardly walk. This can happen when she has only just gone out the door.She was always very fit walking was never a problem for her.
Reading about Vascular Dementia wich she suffers from,one of the things that was mentioned was troubles with movement. Its as if the brain can't remember what its suppose to do.She rest for awhile and seems ok again.Could it be the illness?

Could be Sonia - but why don't you keep a note of when it happens and see if it ties in with anything else ? Is it every time she is going out - perhaps it's like a panic attack ?

The best person to ask would be her GP or her dementia consultant.
