Care recipient (cr) wanders at different times of the day

Try: Place the brightly colored tape at the bottom of the stairs so cr does not wander up the stairs it also helps if cr can see the bottom step when going down the steps use the brightly colored tape to mark around doors that cr should not wander through sometimes putting the stick down that looks like a black hole on the floor next to the door will prevent cr from going through the door cr may really believe that there is a black hole like in bugs bunny cartoons placing bells that make a loud noise when the door is opened may alert you that cr is going through the door make sure that any mats on the floor are the no-skid type and not very high this will keep cr from dragging toes when walking on the mat

Materials: Brightly colored tape stick down that looks like a black hole yellow no crossing tape that is used in traffic and construction areas
