Something that happens a lot when the tv is on is that grandma will read and read whatever words are on the screen over and over. Or read any words that are on commercials. Here is an example of the usual scenario: I’ll be watching HGTV and it always says HGTV in the bottom right hand corner like most tv networks do during shows. Grandma keeps reading it and saying it out loud, “HGTV...” many times. I can never hear anything they’re saying on the shows so a lot of the time I end up turning off the tv so it can rest for a little while. Does anyone else’s loved one with dementia do this, or a behavior that is similar? I’m curious of the possible reasons she may do this? Of course I know she does this due to the disease, but is it because reading is a skill that is currently still fairly well intact for her, so she just gravitates towards what she knows? I’ve just never heard of anyone else’s loved one doing this. Even though she reads, she does not understand tv at all anymore. Cannot follow shows or what is happening. Sometimes when I’m watching tv, I can see her out of the corner of my eye and instead of looking at the tv, she is staring at me. We used to have so much fun watching certain shows together before she had dementia, but now it just feels like I’m watching alone. Dementia is heartbreaking and it’s so hard to see her like this.
