A Care recipient (cr) with a recent fracture forgets to keep weight off the affected leg

Try: Sew the velcro into the inside of the sock where it will be directly under the sole of the foot that is not supposed to bear weight the hooks should face toward where the foot will be in when the sock is worn put the sock on and check to see that the velcro is in place our bodies have an automatic reaction to painful stimulus and this is not affected by dementia the velcro may provide a sensory cue to the Care recipient (cr) with dementia discouraging the cr from putting weight on the foot every time i take a step with this affected leg i feel bristles on my sole and it hurts

Materials: 2 x 4 thick scratchy piece of the hooks side of velcro sock
