This has been working very well for us. He is a very paranoid guy, even well before his disease showed. One of his scenarios was that the state took the car away to force him to take the bus, since the state is short on money. I run with stuff like that for a minute or so, just long enough to validate his feelings on it and his frustation. Then change the subject to something totally different.

Its a fine line to walk though. I have slippped and said we should do a certain thing....and he grabbed on to that idea for weeks and would not let it go, lol.
