My mom is an early onset dementia patient. I have posted something similar to this before but I cannot for the life of me find the post to bring the topic back up. I want to know if anyone else's person they care for remembers things that cannot possibly have happened. My mom will watch a TV show that is airing for the first time and say she has seen it. Is this a common symptom?

I cannot say my mom does the same thing but I can tell you that Alzheimer's causes a great deal of confusion and that might be why she thinks she saw it before. Sadly, it is very difficult for us to know what we can listen to and what to ignore. This disease is SO much harder on the family than the patient. Nancy Reagan said it best when she called it the long goodbye.
I wish you well,

Hi Teddtlove,
In my experience everyone is different. There are common symptoms but no "normal". The only thing to do is see what works best for your mom and the people around her. Does it matter that she thinks she already saw the show? If she gets upset maybe she should do something else. If she takes it easy maybe you can turn it into a game and have her tell you what is about to happen. The only thing that really matters is that she feels good and calm and so do you. If she is right or not doesn't really matter. Just do what works for you and don't worry!
