“Modifying the physical environment, including: aids such as grab bars and handrails; labelling, rearranging, or removing objects; and placing clothing or other frequently needed items where they can be easily found without having to remember where they are kept.
Simplifying the tasks of daily living, for example by using short verbal or written instructions, planning and writing out a daily routine, and assistive technologies.
Providing a supportive social environment, including helping carers involve their social network in caring responsibilities, and helping them communicate with healthcare and social care professionals.
