- Breaking tasks down in to smaller manageable steps can help the person you care for to complete tasks independently
- This can relate to self-care tasks like brushing teeth or dressing, or when paying for groceries at a shop.
- For example rather than saying you need to change your shoes, providing step by step instructions can help your loved one to understand clearly what they need to do:
2.Take off this shoe (left) and this shoe (right)
3.Move these shoes to the side
4.Put on the other shoes, this shoe first (left) and then this shoe (right)
