Well, you are doing the right thing by going along. I help out my paternal gma with gpa who has dementia. He is a military vet, and he is worse than ever with the "spotless" house. Gma tried to clean the top of the stove, and argued there was nothing there. I happened to come to visit and she told me what was going on, and I went up to where he was scrubbing the stove and said "papa, can I help you?" and made it sound like I really wanted to, he accepted my offer, and said I would have to use elbowgrease, and watched me. By not argueing, and humouring, I avoided the behavior he gets cuz of the dementia.
