My heart goes out to you. This is not acceptable behavior at the day center and it is not acceptable behavior to you. Poor Hubby can't help it and it isn't personal or intentional, but it still cannot be tolerated. This is beyond what you can handle on your own.

What kind of dementia does he have? What kind of specialist does he see? His doctors must be told in detail about these behaviors. This is a medical problem and it needs to be addressed medically immediately.
