Dementia can cause personality changes, but usually due to memory-loss. I think you'd be seeing more memory-loss issues than you're seeing if it was truly an issue with dementia.

It might be wise to mention these symptom to his doctor if they are new behaviors for him. There certainly may be a medical reason for his behavior or even a medication that he's taking. It would be wise to try and find the cause.
