Sometimes when I have a geriatric client that I'm interviewing and they seem cautious or hesitant, I will talk for a little while about something I saw in the news or if I notice something in their home that is important to them I will ask them if they would tell me about the item. If they continue to be cautious or hesitant I will ask them what they had for breakfast and then follow the question with how are you feeling today? Geriatric patients respond to sincerity and sometimes it is a little bit before they can make the determination that you are sincere.
