Hello, Apologies for posting this, I really hope this doesn't offend anyone. I have a very dear family friend, I have called her Q (not her initial). She now resides in a care home where the standard of care is second to none. Q has always regarded swearing, and any form of bad language as strictly unacceptable, and in all the years I have known her has *never* used anything stronger than 'blast'. Bad language just isn't her. She is now well along the dementia path. Unfortunately the dementia has completely changed her, in particular her levels of aggression. Including becoming very verbally explicit. Especially towards anyone that suggests anything she doesn't want to do (a carer offering a cup of tea was told to .............go away). Q no longer has self awareness- she would be absolutely horrified, and indeed devastated if she could see herself as she is now. I keep telling myself that its the dementia talking, not Q herself, and that at the end of the day its communication, pure and simple, just delivered with words that some people would find offensive. I haven't had much experience with dementia, so is this a feature of dementia, that those people experiencing dementia become completely disinhibited?????
