Does Anyone Else's Loved One Watch The Same Movie Over And Over And Over And OVER Again?

Does Anyone Else's Loved One Watch The Same Movie Over And Over And Over And OVER Again?

My husband will watch the SAME movie three and four times in a row and watches that same movie for four to,six weeks!
Then he will pick another movie and do,the same thing all over again!

Its just like small children, 3-3 years old. When they first become interested in movies it is often the music or colors that attracts them. As they watch it more often, thry are able to understand what is going on, then they begin to understand the dialogue. Thats why they continue to watch it until they have it memorized almost. Then they are ready for a new oneone. Alzheimer's / Dementia patients are much the same way, just in reverse. Initially they enjoy the plot/story line. Gradually they watch for the music and sounds, until they recognize very little in any movies and lose interest entirely.

@A myALZteam Member Do you have an iPod or something that you can use headphones with? When I am sewing, I find a radio station I like on the computer and play that. He is hard of hearing, so he doesn't even hear it! At least then, I can drown out his movies! ;-)

My husband doesn't watch movies but I have had to listen to the same CD in the car for five years. It has been to the other end of California and back once a year. I'm surprised it still works. When he is at home he only will listen to loud Christian music on tv. No tv shows ever. And the louder it is the happier he is and I hate loud music. It has been hard for me.
