Customer Question

My father,95, in Rolleston, Central Queensland, has been talking on the phone to me. His speech was somewhat blurred but mostly understandable. He said he had been outside looking for me as he said I was at the table with him and my mother and then disappeared. He thought I had gone outside. This sounded to me like a mild hallucination as I am at home in Toowoomba.Could this be a stroke symptom?
He has no other symptoms that we know of.
My brother lives next door to him on their property at Rolleston. We have informed him of this incident.
Dad has no previous heart or stroke history but has been on high blood pressure tablets in the past.
