Thank you all for your advice. On our daily program we just list activities in the dementia wing as eg: "Activities" 2pm-3pm, so depending on whats happening on the day we do a few different activities in smaller groups....

Hi Tina
Instead of with you having him write down what he should do you read down and put it in strategic places in his house
If he still couldn’t read which it sounds like he can and he will be able to follow what’s on the card
Make sure to make it simple and break things down so they’re easy to understand
You may also want to have pictures of things to do also
These cards may help you
