Care recipient (cr) is socially withdrawn

Try: #talk and find out what the cr’s interests are and what games the cr would like to play for example cards chess scrabble or any other game that has to be played with at least two people if military history is an interest try games such as risk or battleship if the business world is an interest try games such as monopoly #pick a table in a quiet secluded area to set up the game #sit with the cr and talk as you play the game at first keep conversations and activities short you can increase the length of time gradually #as the cr becomes more open to dialogue during the one-on-one time ask if the cr would mind if another person was invited to play with you if the cr does not object find another game player find someone who you think would have good chemistry with the cr #encourage conversation between the cr and the new player help out by asking interesting questions they both can answer and talk about #praise the cr for socializing say how much you and others enjoy spending time playing and talking with the cr #continue using this approach with the cr to encourage socialization over time the cr may become more comfortable with social interaction
