Dear Carol: After Mom died seven years ago Dad adjusted as well as could be expected. However, over the last three years he’s been sliding into dementia. He’s confused about people, which is our biggest problem for now. When Dad sees my 22-year-old daughter he thinks that she is my mother back when my parents were young. His overly affectionate welcomes are clearly sexual in nature and it makes us all deeply uncomfortable.
