Tactics to Help with Repetition
Encourage your loved one to find the answer to the question they keep repeating.
Your loved one may become anxious about future events, which can lead to repetition—avoid mentioning the trip until a short time before it takes place.
Reassure your loved one that they are safe and loved.
Try letting the repetitive actions run their course.
Ask your loved one to tell you more about their concerns—sometimes drawing out the conversation can stop the repetition.
If your loved one is using repetitive phrases or movements, this can be due to a noisy or stressful surroundings or boredom.
Keep your loved one engaged in activities they used to enjoy.
Try distracting your loved one with their favorite treat or song when they are repeating words or questions.
If your loved one becomes fixated on an object, distract them and remove.
