How to talk to a dementia patient?

Father has multi infarct dementia and lives in nursing home.  He constantly 
talks about buying a new car or house and I tell him that he is not capable of 
driving or living without constant observation and help.  I noticed that other 
visitors to nursing home essentially tell white lies to their parent and 
others with dementia/alzheimers.  I'm curious as to what it is best to tell 
these poor folks.  Any comments?
