The Care recipient (cr) doesn’t seem to understand what is being said

Try: # explain things in more than one way or restate things using simple words # look at cr’s facial expressions or gestures to see if he or she understands what is being said or asked # write tasks down with step by step instructions # demonstrate tasks to cr # make a diagram of how to complete tasks # ask cr if he or she understands and then watch to see if they do when they perform a task # do tasks along side of the cr # break down daily schedule so that only a few tasks need to be done each hour

Materials: # index cards # pencil pen
