again, reading the paper but not reading

I have so many pictures of my father "reading." When I offer a section of the paper to the others at his table, they usually accept, and they, too, "read." So many residents were readers, surely.

But with Alzheimers - or dementia - the ability to understand written words, I guess, goes....vocabulary stays. And my father can still spell. But he doesn't seem to comprehend what he reads.
