He has made sexual advances to some if my adult female friends which are very inappropriate and embarrassing. He was living in Florida alone and has even been asked to leave some of his favorite restaurants for his inappropriate behavior. Now he is fixating on my nephews new wife and created a horrible situation by making some advances to her. My sisters and I have had to make the decision not to include him any more in certain family gatherings for fear that he can't behave himself. When confronted about his behavior he doesn't seem to realize what he has done. Has anyone else experienced this? How did or four you handle it?

Johnjoe,
We understand that the sexual behavior is from the illness and after this last incident in which he made advances to his grandson's wife, it was very upsetting to her. I have reached out to his neurologist to see if there is medication that may help the situation. We aren't trying to punish our father, but we do have a responsibility to protect others as well. Thank you for your thoughts.

jamonett You kneed to explain to Your Friends and members of Your Family Who do not know that it's the illness which is causing this behaviour as Your Dad would never behave like so when He was in great health. Do not punish Your Dad by omitting Him from Family gatherings rather understand His illness and help Him.

Great idea, geewiz. Inappropriate sexual behaviors are very common with FTD. The filters that would keep them from acting out primal instincts have broken. It is a brain thing and would have horrified your father before he got ill. I was glad to read that there was something that could help. Thanks, geewiz.

Jamonett, this is more common than many realize for dementia sufferers. Speak to the doctor and ask for a patch to control the hormones. It worked miracles with my friend's Dad.

You have him committed, asap because he is a danger to himself and others. You make think he is harmless, but anyone who shoots him would have a justifiable homicide defense.

The family has to realize it is his dementia doing this, not him per say. Have a chat with his primary doctor to see if some type of medicine could help him to not act this way.
