I’ve been dating my boyfriend for two years now, and his grandmother who has dementia on and off decides that I’m in the house trying to steal their money, she also often becomes convinced he or his mother have flown away and left her or died while they’re away at work or something similar . I don’t want her to be afraid of me, or leave her thinking something happened to her family, is there anything I can do?

No one has dementia “on and off,” so what I think you’re talking about is that sometimes she’s less confused than other times, or at least about who you are. There’s really not much you can do here. I would keep my distance from her when you can. She may have met someone who looks like you in the past, and doesn’t trust that person. You can’t convince her otherwise, so just be polite, smile, and give her space when you can.
