Care recipient (cr) expresses the need to feel useful

Try: # ask the cr to help you make greeting cards #cut the 8in x 11 card stock in half width-wise so you have two pieces that are 8in x 5in #fold each piece in half length-wise to make a card that measures 4.5 x 5 in when folded #ask the cr to look through the magazines and cut out any pictures he or she likes that will fit on the card #ask the cr to decorate the cards further using the stamps ribbons stickers or buttons #ask the cr to write one greeting on each card for example happy birthday or thank you #the cards can be abstract and free-formed or themed for example for a garden theme the cr could use flowers rain sunshine watering cans and so on #let the cr know how much people will love the homemade cards also let the cr know how much you would appreciate sending cards that have a personal touch #this activity can be done either at a table or in bed with a lap table
