I can't believe my grandma and grandpa are getting divorced after 52 years. She says he's been cheating but everyone says she has dementia. I feel bad for him. Me and my grandma are close. Is there anything I can say or do to help? The rest of the family says I should leave them alone.

If her personality has changed, yes, it's most likely dementia. They don't need to be left alone. They need good doctors and professional help. It's hard being in the position you are in, and it sounds like the rest of the family just wants to bury their heads. That's why dementia is called "the long good-bye." Very sad and will get worse. That's why they need help.
