caregiver (cg) family member is disappointed when Care recipient (cr) doesn’t recognize them as their child

Try: Develop a photo memory identification card to use when communicating with the cr try to discover what moment and what age the cr remembers the child to be and use a photo of that age also add a recent photo put both of these photos on a single page with the descriptions under them reading my son daughter name at age 5 and the other description reading my son daughter name now and show them to the cr when he or she doesn’t seem to recognize the cr family member the two images side by side will usually trigger the cr’s memory once the cr makes the connection share some memories as a conversation starter

Materials: Photo of cg family member as a child photo of cg family member as an adult tape paper and pen
