Having been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 5 years ago the memory retention of my OH, Pauline, has clearly changed and declined but recently seems so erratic. She watches incessant “classic” TV dramas and at least three specialist channels a day are recorded and then watched hour after hour. Yes, various episodes and series are watched more than once and she never notices but yesterday she was cursing as all the recordings had been ‘seen’ before and she remembers them ( but not the other 2 or 3 times watched). Having got me to delete all of the days collection she then sat and watched one of the deleted episodes of Holby ‘ live ‘and was quite happy as it was to her, a new episode. There is no rhyme or reason to recal or retention and while frustrating and some time annoying they can be very amusing in a good way.
