  1. Put your own keys in a place where your loved one is unlikely find them. Instead of using a hook or shelf by the door, hide them in the back of a lower drawer or shelf. Give your loved one a set of old keys to hold onto.

  2. Unplug all appliances that can pose a danger such as a toaster for when your loved one decides to place a spoon in one of the slots.

  3. Check cupboards and cabinets daily for that open jar of peanut butter or quart of milk.

  4. Look in the back of your loved one’s closet for inappropriate items hidden. You might be surprised to find your wallet, favorite pen, jewelry, or even a cup of urine.

  5. Lock your closet or home office when you’re away from home to prevent your papers and other valuables from being reorganized and “put away.”
