How to Respond to Challenging Behavior

What would you suggest for a male person in his 80's who has dementia,is not ambulant.
He will not sit for any length of time in a chair or bed.
He keeps trying to get up and walk.
I have tried various distractions to no avail, he is not interested in any activity at all.
Every time this person tries to walk he falls over and injures himself.
Could you help me please.

regards Anne
