Hi Has anyone experienced this with their loved one? Briefly, my 86 year old mum lives with me and my husband. Due to mum being very poorly with acute bronchitus for 8 weeks I started using a baby monitor so I could react if she needed me. It has been a great help, however, of late mum has started to comfort herself sexually. I was fine with this as she was in the confines of her own room and if it gives her pleasure that is her perogative, however, when I went out the other evening and left her watching TV with my husband I returned to find him very distressed as she had been making VERY inappropriate requests of him. Although I know it is the illness causing her to act like this it was not something I could just leave so I explained very sternly to her that this was not acceptable behaviour. She is now very depressed and I'm not sure if she realises what she has done or if she will just forget about it until next time. Has anyone experience this behaviour and if so how should I deal with it effectively. My husband is very worried about being left alone with her again which will make it very difficult for me to get out of the house.
