15. and know that they often will not ask for things they need

so you may need to just pitch in.. things that are mundane and tedious for them of things that their loved one used to do might be a good place to start..

You just have to play it by ear.....some people take longer to work though the process..

Instead of saying, "what can I do?" you might say, "I'm going for carry out, what do you want me to get you.,. or should I surprise you". It's kind of like when you ask a toddler what they want to wear.. It's always easier if you give them two choices..A or B

Just being there is a blessing to them
