It's hard to tell what is what. He may not be doing things for himself because maybe he thinks why bother, someone else can do it or it can very well be part of his dementia. If he shows confusion over something, than its probably the dementia. Or if he throws things on the floor and doesn't bother to pick it up (when in that past he would), it might be the dementia as well.
You guys know him better than us obviously, so it's hard to say because we don't witness it nor do we know his history.
