From The Daily Mail:

"Half of family members who look after someone with dementia admit they behave abusively towards them, say researchers.

And a third own up to 'significant' levels of abuse, according to the first study of its kind.

Those with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia are frequently the butt of swearing and shouting, and may even be hit by members of their own family, the study says."
