Minding Our Elders: Grandma’s swearing upsets family

DEAR CAROL: My grandma and I have always been close and I love her very much. She’s got Alzheimer’s disease, now, and she’s started swearing which isn’t like her at all. She uses words that embarrass me when my friends are around. I know it’s not her fault, but I really am upset by it. My parents are bothered by it, too, but they say we just have to live with it. I’m fourteen and mature, but this is really bothering me. – Angie
