Care recipient (cr) often disoriented and unable to identify door of his or her bedroom

Try: #look for craft supplies including rubber bracelets in an arts and crafts store #using the scissors cut the sheets of poster board lengthwise into three inch wide strips #also cut a 4×6 piece from the poster board and set aside to use as a name sign #tape the strips of paper around the door frame so it looks like a border #with the marker neatly print the cr’s name on the 4×6 poster board #tape the name sign next to the door at eye level #ask the cr to wear a colored rubber bracelet on the wrist that matches the color of the border on the door #show the cr that his or her door is outlined in the same color as the bracelet #show the cr if the room can’t be found all that has to be done is find the door that has the colored border that matches the bracelet #upon arriving at the door the cr will be reassured by the sign with his or her name on it

Materials: Large piece of poster board in a neon color rubber bracelet the same color as the poster board scissors tape ruler black permanent marker
