Hello; I am desperate and don t know whether I should take my husband to the ER or not. He has Parkinsons and moderate dementia. This is something that goes on but it seems especially worse today. He is complaining of being cold and is shivering. He has had his meds ( 2 hours ago). I have covered him with 3 blankets( one is electric and on low) ; he has gloves on and some special bootees on that can be/ have been microwaved. He is still cold and uncomfortable.The house heat is on and I also have a space heater on across from the bed. I am at a loss. . I apologize but I can not pay you; I do not have the money right now. I did not realize this was a pay sight. I appreciate your effort. I will just have to find an answer.

My husband has been diagnosed with vascular dementia. He is being encouraged to keep up with his exercise which he does five days per week. What are the benefits of exercise for someone already suffering with moderate dementia? Can exercise help reverse or delay the progress of disease?
