This happened with my aunt, who had Alzheimer's, and is currently happening with my uncle. Lately he's been bein inappropriate with his carers. As this is obviously not an uncommon situation, it sounds like it would be worth talking to a professional - doctor, dementia nurse, or somebody for help. Please let us know what advice is given - there will be others facing the same challenges!
