“My husband Evan was diagnosed with dementia in his mid- 40s. He lived at home with us until his needs exceeded our abilities to provide excellent care. During visits with Evan, it was a challenge to witness the television being used as a babysitter, with residents stuck in front of the TV becoming agitated, confused, or falling asleep. I started wondering whether there was television programming specifically intended for people like Evan who could no longer track a plot, who had a hard time telling fiction from reality, who were challenged to process rapidly moving dialogue or images.”
