I’m sure they do @vannesser, if a person with dementia thinks they are 30 again, they will act as they did at 30.

The same happens when the no longer recognise you as their partner. My husband did not recognise me as his wife, in his head I was probably the stick thin dark haired person I was at 30, not the plump, wrinkled grey haired lady of 60+ years I had turned into.
