"I want to Watch the Show Again!"

As the theatre emptied with everyone exclaiming how amazing the Cassowary is and this was the first time they had seen one etc --- I noticed one lady who was not getting up from her seat so Jean went to find out if she needed help. Joan said, "No, I am fine. I want to watch the show again. I don't want to go." We couldn't convince her that there wasn't going to be another bird show until next Saturday and there she sat waiting for the Cassowary show to play again. Eventually found her way to the lobby still insisting she wanted to watch the bird show again.
I was thrilled that the show had impacted her so positively and she responded to it so well as she is having serious problems with dementia and shows very little interest in what is happening around her.

The source of the Cassowary show is on youtube
