Bad Behavior - Swearing, Offensive Language & Inappropriate Comments

 

When a normally loving father or mother is suddenly using the worst profanities, using offensive language or saying inappropriate things, family members are baffled as to why…and what to do about it.


We've heard stories about parents who used to be mild-mannered, proper, and would never utter a four-letter word suddenly cursing at their caregiver or calling them insulting names. When it happens in public, it's embarrassing; when it happens in private it's hurtful.


What to do:
When the behavior is out-of-character for an elder, the start of Alzheimer's or dementia is a likely cause.

How do you deal with swearing?

 

A couple of ideas: when a swearing tirade sets in, use distraction. Diverting your elderly parent's attention is a simple, but effective technique. Once their mind is redirected, the swearing fit may end.


Also, try bringing up happy times from the old days. Like all people, elders love to reminisce about their lives "back in the day." Using their long-term memory skills, the elderly parent will likely forget about whatever it is in the present that set them off.

 

If none of this works, back off, disappear and wait for it to blow over.
