Could my dad have had a stroke? My dad won't go to the doctor so I'm not sure. He's 79 and lives alone in another state. He said he had a "seisure" on the golf course and hadn't been feeling well since. He says he has vertigo. When I went to visit him, his left leg moved in a jerky way and he tripped and lost his balance frequently. He has bruises all over his legs from falling. He says his right hand is numb. He is
not aware that he may have had a stroke. He smokes a lot and drinks. He says he is done with doctors. I think he wants to die but he may have a more serious "seisure" next time and be paralized which would impact all of us. He is very difficult to be around but he needs help. He is very depressed but won't listen to anyone. He should move out of his big house but won't consider it. What can I do? I would appreciate feedback.
