What is it?
Repeating a word, phrase, action or idea and not being able to stop
How can it affect you?
- You may have difficulty moving on to the next activity or thought
- You may seem “stuck”. For example, you repeat the same word or wash your face over and over.
Strategies for caregivers
- Plan the task with the person and give clear step-by-step instructions
- Help the person stop if they get "stuck" and help them to start the next step
- Provide hand-over-hand guidance and cueing
