My husband has dementia, probably more like Alzheimer's and is heading into the third stage, I think. He has brought down to the tv room where he hangs out two stuffed animals, both of which were mine but he sort of took them over. He talks to one in particular from time to time but I just thought he was playing around. Yesterday our 9 yr old granddaughter was over and was playing with the animals which are both primates and she was fiddling with the arms and spiking the fur on their heads. Tom became uptight that she was going to rip an arm off or pull all the fur out. She and I thought he was kidding but as she continued with what she was doing, he bacame more persistent and finally she had to put them back where they were. She is old enough to play nicely with things that aren't hers so there was no reason for Tom's reaction. He was behaving like a child who didn't want to share his toys.I was just amazed, never having seen this kind of behavior from him before. Does this sound familiar to anyone else? How did you handle it?
