One thing that drives dementia caregivers crazy is repetitive questions and repetitive behavior.
I know this from the number of emails I receive on this issue, and the number of comments we get on the issue.
It is clear to me that a large fraction of patients living with dementia ask the same things over and over, and do the same thing over and over.
I understand how disconcerting this can be -- I was there once upon a time.
It took me a long time to understand this repetitive behavior and adjust to it. I am looking at my da Vinci pad and some of my bunkhouse notes right now.
One question I asked myself, why am I allowing this behavior to drive me nuts?
