caregivers process information

Refresh yourself with the definitions of Extrovert and Introvert.
The basic difference is the way ideas are processed. An extrovert seems to thrive when synenergy is present. An introvert wants to achieve sensibility for making committments.
Caregivers must learn there is a time both methods of handling information will be needed.
Most likely the care receiver has other persons in their circle of support. The caregiver must facilitate news sharing within the group(s) so the care receiver doesn’t become exhausted by the exchanges.
The care receiver will have more down time during periods of demand. Caregivers must respect the need for positive influences. Often this entails a minimalistic approach to providing details.
Caregiving is tough. We find ourselves in a world of our own.
