Is it just me? Why is it that others talk to people with dementia as if they are small children? I've even noticed this with support staff. He is still a grown man, having lived a full life and is a husband. It really annoys me. I've seen the same happen to my aunt who was physically disabled and with colleague and friend with physical disabilities. We shared an office and people would turn toward me, when they should have been addressing her. Life will continue to be awkward.
