Dementia touches a lot of people's lives, so is there anyone who wishes to talk about it on here? Just a thought.

No that is what happened Coldlwater, so there is no other way to say it. I am so sorry, dementia can be SO hard to watch in a relative. I hope he got good care in the end of his life. My husband was alcoholic, died at age 56, last year, and he showed early stages of Korsakov's too. It can be hard that one.
I don't know about your grandfather, but my husband went through a phase of being quite aggressive, verbally, for about a few months. Then he sank into constant foggy drunkeness. Incontinence was an issue too, but he wouldn't let me do anything, he denied everything. I think till the moment he died he thought he would be OK. At least they aren't suffering anymore, that is all we can say really with this dementia.
