This is my first time on Talking Point so please bear with me if I am doing it wrong-My 86 year old father has vascular dementia and lives alone. He has been diagnosed by a physician and just recently started getting outside assistance for some areas of care but his main care giver is myself. I only have one brother and he lives out of state. We talk often and I get moral support but he only comes to visit or help twice a year. My major complaint is that I constantly stay frustrated because of dad's lack of comprehension and understanding. He cannot speak sentences because the words just don't come to him and it is sometimes like playing a game of charades trying to figure out what he is trying to tell me. He also gets one subject in his head and constantly ask me the same thing over and over for days on end. Do any of you have advice on how to control my frustration?
