Lilliane Asks a Question and is Seeking Advice

What is the best way to deal with this?

Alzheimer's Reading Room

Reader Lilliane asks.

Question: More than once, he has been impatient and challenging to friends ... in public ... like snarling at someone or being really unreasonable.

I haven't told anyone about the AD as it would feel like a betrayal, and I feel certain he would be horrified if I did say anything.

One good friend, whose mother had AD, recognized it for what it was but others just think he's getting really ornery. His speech at times is also questionable. This is becoming awkward.

What is the best way to deal with this? Thanks in advance.
