Many people with dementia can get into this type of conversation because they've lost their inhibitions or they simply don't understand what they are doing. Try to distract the person with other things, such as an old photo album with recognizable (to that person) people, or music or a DVD of old TV shows the person may remember. Getting the person's mind off of the current obsession can help these uncomfortable encounters. Try to ignore any inappropriate comments as you re-direct their attention.
