My 88-year-old mother repeats herself incessantly.
My mother repeats herself, often asking the same question repeatedly up to (20) times in as little as a half hour. When I gently mention it to her and ask if she wants me to help her remember by repeating the answer back to me or writing it down, she becoms angry or hurt or both. She either denys it or says I am just trying to hurt her feelings. I feel like I am trying to help her but her consistenly negative reaction makes me question my actions. Would it be better for all concerned just to simply answer the question repeatedly.
