My father has Alzheimer's and has been passing out over and over. They have taken him to the hospital several times, saying his heart rate has dropped, sometimes registering at 40 bpm. He looks like he is going into an "absence seizure," but then falls down and loses consciousness for a very short time. He is very weak and sleeps all the time. They finally put in a pacemaker and a week later he had two of these "episodes" back-to-back in one morning.
He still is fairly early in this disease process. Still eating and caring for himself fairly well. He doesn't wander off, he just wants to sleep and says he's so tired. He is still at home, Mom is still watching after him.
Anyone have any comments on this? We'd appreciate any advice. Thanks
