caregiver (cg) needs advice on how to effectively communicate with Care recipient (cr)

Try: Realize that listening requires more than just hearing the words it may be frustrating for the cr to engage in conversation because they forget the words don’t let them struggle to find a word – give them ample time to remember it on their own and then gently supply a word that you think they are searching for don’t try to use logic or common sense if the cr says something that you know is wrong or not relevant adjust the conversation to their level even if it doesn’t make sense to you enter their reality don’t try to make them enter yours don’t argue – agree would you rather be right or have the cr be calm and happy
