Try: Choose a bright bedspread that contrasts with the floor or sew a colorful ribbon around the edge of an existing spread to help distinguish the edge of the bed from similarly colored flooring or carpeting use a talking alarm clock or one with very large numbers add lights in the closet that automatically turn on when the door is opened arrange clothes according to color install a light switch table lamp or an automatic nightlight by the bedroom door so the cr never walks through a dark room have a lamp that can be turned on off from the bedside hang sheer curtains or blinds on windows to reduce glare attach contrasting molding or colored tape to furniture edges keep a magnifier on the bedside table
