Attention

What is it?

Being able to concentrate on a task for the time needed to complete it.

 

How can it affect you?

  • You may be easily distracted so it is hard to focus
  • You may have trouble paying attention to more than one thing at a time.

 

Strategies for you and your caregiver

  • Reduce distractions. For example, turn off the radio or TV when you are trying to focus.
  • Complete tasks in a quiet place
  • Take your time and do things one step at a time
