Asking Happy Questions

(Columbia, SC, Richland)

I have learned with my grandmother who loves to talk and still has memories of the past such as family and friends. I ask her a series of questions, ones I have heard time and time again. As long as I contine to ask her questions, questions that bring up good memroies such her being a teacher,where she met her husband, and how she looked forward to retirement it eases the aggitation later in the day. Whenever the person gets angry or aggitated changing the subject by changing the conversation such as asking happy questions helps out greatly.
