caregiver (cg) needs useful ways to deal with Care recipient (cr) hoarding or hiding things

Try: First of all one of the best ways to cope with hoarding or hiding is to adopt an accept and encourage attitude deliberately leave things out that you think the cr will want to hoard or hide – things that will catch their eye make it into an activity that can actually be enjoyed by the cr on a daily basis provide the cr with a shopping or hoarding bag for them to carry as they wander around this way you won’t have to hunt so hard for things that seem to disappear try to discover the place where the cr is most likely to hide what they have accumulated if possible provide a colorful chest or hamper that will entice the cr to hide the objects once you have discovered the hiding place it will be easy to remove the items from there and place them around the room so they can be picked up again the next day
