Work In The Garden

Taking care of something can give your loved one a sense of responsibility and pride. You can take them to your local nursery and let them pick out some favorite plants you can plant together. Even some fresh herbs in a windowsill can be planted with limited dexterity. Make sure you have ergonomic tools in case they experience any pain. Once your garden harvests, you can share the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor with them!
