In brief: Accept it

Make sure pt. Has a diagnosis (like dementia).
Once diagnosis is sure you have to avoid taking it personally when the patient does not recognize you or ask you the same thing often. Follow the flow, do not get angry with him. Try to ventilate your frustrations with a positive and productive way. Involve the whole family. Reserve some time for you personally to do thongs you use to love.
