My parents are both 88 yrs old. My dad was diagnosed with dementia recently. In addition to the forgetfulness he steals from wherever he goes, it could be my home, church, grocery store a party, he takes whatever he wants. I'm dealing with this but the anger towards my mom is uncontrollable. He is both verbally and physically abusive to her. It started about a year ago occasionally, now its daily. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, it is common, the agitation. Sometimes a urinary tract infection is the cause or some other medical issue. When was the last time he was at the doc? Call doc, better yet, see doc to get checked out.

It may be time to separate them to keep mom safe.
