Care recipient (cr) becomes agitated when preferred caregiver (cg) is not present

Try: Ask the preferred cg to record several reassuring messages for the cr each one about ten to twelve seconds long make sure the messages include the fact that the preferred cg will be back soon and that the cg cares for the cr when the preferred cg is absent and the cr is agitated play the messages for the cr provide reassurance that you are present and caring and that the cr is not alone by gently stroking the cr cr’s arm or hand while the recording plays if possible find a format that will allow the cr to play the messages as often as he or she desires post a note with the day and time the preferred cg will return in a place where the cr can see it and refer the cr to it whenever necessary
