Put up a white board

In some central part of the house, you can put up a big white board, maybe 2 by 3 feet, and a variety of colored washable ink pens. All kinds of reminders can go on this: Today's day of the week, date, any scheduled events, tasks to do, when to take things out of the freezer to thaw. It can be a reminder for the person with cognitive impairment, but also anyone else in the household including paid caregivers.

LOVE IT !!!  Much better than little sticky notes everywhere.

I can see this as an advantage for even those who don't have cognitive impairment.
