Frontal temporal dementia

My husband has frontal temporal dementia with parkinson traits.  It seems to be effecting him the most with his walking.  His legs just don't want to move.  I don't want to put him in care facility and moved to a handicap assessible home to prevent that.  But concerned if he can't walk, I'm not certain he can wheel himself around in wheelchair.  I need to keep working for insurance.  Just don't know what my next step or options are?  Can you help with suggestions?

  At this point he might need a home attendant for assistance.
It would be worthwhile to apply for that and also see if any insurance
coverage would cover that option for him.
