    My husband has been diagnosed with dementia
    Or Alzheimer
    He seems fine most of the time but he has been exhibiting inappropriate sexual behavior
    This seems to run in a cycle. Is that normal ?

    Welcome to TP @mariebutler22

    Sorry to hear your difficulties.

    Have you talked to anyone? Doctor or CPN? I realise that it’s a different subject to raise and probably easier here on line rather than face to face..
    But I think it should be in his notes for the future..

    hello @mariebutler22
    and welcome from me too
    not such an unfamiliar situation as other members have written of similar issues, so you are not alone by any means and it will be worth having a mooch around to maybe find their threads
    sometimes a tweak in meds can make a difference, so do have a chat with your GP and let them know how this is affecting you

    It's worth looking at any medication he started to take before this behaviour started as some can cause it.
