Care recipient (cr) has trouble reading small print

Try: #keep a magnifying glass near reading materials keep additional magnifiers in the kitchen and bathroom if they would be useful for reading labels there #cut a 3 x 3 rectangle out of black construction paper fold the paper in half then cut a 1in rectangle; when you open it it will be 3 x 3 place the cutout on a page directly over the print being read to help the cr the cutout will help the cr focus on one word at a time place tape around the rest of the construction paper so it will glide across the page smoothly this method while not an efficient way to read a book may be useful for a cr trying to follow a recipe

Materials: Magnifying glass extras if desired black construction paper tape
