Caregiver Wisdom: Answering . . . and Answering Again

(from a Letter to the husband caregiver of a wife with Alzheimer’s Disease) 

I’d be surprised if there’s anyone [caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease] who hasn’t experienced the endlessly repetitive questions.

Your wife asks the same question again and again because she does not remember you’ve just answered it―or even that she has ever asked it before.  But for some reason she does remember it’s important to her to know the answer, so she asks.  Because she knows she can depend on you to know the answer.

Caregiver Wisdom: Emotional Care + Physical Care

The first Year after I started caring for my wife (two strokes at age 39 and 43 yrs) at home I thought that she was the same person I knew before the issues occurred.  I would become angry with her for “doing this to me”, when, in fact, she wasn’t doing anything  consciously.
