Empathy and Inappropriate Behavior Go Hand In Hand
Let’s say your mom is usually very polite and sweet. One day you notice that she’s getting rude to you and others. It’s as if she doesn’t notice that what she’s doing is wrong. This is a sign of dementia. People with dementia often lose the ability to read social situations. This can cause them to lash out or say things they don’t mean. If this happens to your loved one, getting medical attention is vital. This is a very early sign of dementia. So, it’s essential to keep a close eye on the behavior of your older friends and family. Remember, it’s not their fault when they say or do hurtful things.
