Paul, this can be difficult. I think it is important to remember that the disease can cause many of these behavior issues such as paranoia. Learn as much as possible by watching the AlzBetter videos and using the Problems and Solutions to figure out if there are any underlying root causes.
Try to remember that he has a disease. Also, try to be as understanding as possible. Many times there are reasons that a person is nasty, even if they don’t have dementia. There may have been reasons for his behavior based on his upbringing as an example as possible, so be as understanding as possible.
Maybe you can use this as a reason to learn more about his past and possibly it can help you become closer. Try to stay positive.
