I would probably stop and just check that he's okay. Unless he nicked the dog from somewhere I wouldn't think dementia ward but there are plenty of elderly with dementia living in their own homes and I would hate to just leave in case he's a bit disoriented or something.

A. Definitely. I would wonder about it but wouldn't stop unless there was another reason to worry.

A. .. But if I felt he was possibly not okay Id call the cops for a welfare check.

But i would probably spend the rest of the drive creating a random backstory about why he was doing that! Maybe his dog ran out when he went to grab the paper so quickly grabbed the lead so he could walk the dog home when it was caught. Or maybe he just like the feel of the breeze when he's walking?

A. But I would keep an eye out in case I saw him again.

Well, I did A.
I thought he was just lazy and couldn't be bothered getting dressed. Now I feel a bit cold for not showing any concern!
It's interesting to see other's perspectives.

I wouldn't think dementia because of the dog

A, unnless he was elderly,in which case i would either check he was ok, or ring the local police station & ask if a patrol car could check on him. My grandpa took a looooong walk when he had dementia, and thankfully the police stopped to check on him & were able to contact family & get him home.

A. Who cares if he wants to wear a dressing gown, he's only walking the dog...a lot of elderly people feel the cold easily.
