Care recipient (cr) repeats the same story or asks the same question over and over and caregiver (cg) gets frustrated and is afraid of losing their temper

Try: Try to remember that everytime the cr asks the question it is new to them so try to let it be new to you also keep in mind that their pleasure in telling the story over and over exceeds your displeasure at hearing it don’t try to explain the answer to the cr’s repeated question just answer simply and then add a statement of your own at the end such as i’m glad you mentioned that it reminds me of the time when _____ and interject an experience of your own this may redirect the cr’s thoughts and distract them don’t remind the cr that they have asked the question before
