Hi maggier,

I'm sure that lots of us didn't know this term until reading about it on TP (so you're not thick!) Here is a previous discussion about this:

There is an explanation in the Fact sheet about 'Later stagesof dementia' but we experienced these episodes quite early on with my Dad.

(It's under 'Puzzling behaviour').

Best wishes,
