The Care recipient (cr) follows the caregiver (cg) around constantly

Try: #being shadowed by the cr may be reassuring to the cg at first because the cg always knows where the cr is however if this action continues over a long period of time it could become exasperating to cg #the cr may follow the cg from room to room and up and down steps because the simple action of placing one foot in front of the other to walk has been forgotten the cr may need to watch the cg in order to remember how use this as an opportunity to engage the cr in a fun walking activity encourage others to participate as well #being near the cg at all times could mean security and comfort to the cr look for other ways that security and comfort could be provided for example ##encourage friends and family members to visit the cr ##encourage the cr to build relationships with others through socialization and activities ##provide the cr with a doll baby or stuffed animal this may sound ridiculous but it has been very effective in some situations ##provide the cr with a pet or ask someone with a pet to visit on a regular basis #if the cg needs privacy plan an enjoyable activity that will keep the cr occupied for a short while
