What are your Saturday plans? Do you need an idea for an activity? If your loved one is fond of crafting, knitting, crocheting or sewing you can still help them participate in these activities even if they can’t craft as intricate of a project as they may have once done. Arthritis, joint pain, vision changes and memory changes can all impact a person’s ability to participate in craft projects - but there are ways to still be involved! •Consider craft projects where you can prepare all the materials and your loved one can help with assembly. •Look into large needle knitting or even hand knitting with extra chunky wool. You can do this with your loved one using hand over hand guidance if needed. Plus, this is super in right now and chunky knitting projects will be great holiday gifts or home decor. •Let your loved one participate in handling and organizing supplies. Even sorting or just holding materials that they are familiar with will evoke positive memories and emotions. •Look for a class together at your local library or senior center. These memories are ones that you will hold very dear.
But most of all, enjoy your Saturday! #family #caregiver #caregivers #caregiversupport #craftideas #sewing #knitting_inspiration #crochet #familycaregiver #love #saturday #saturdaysareforfamily
