  • A large Poster Board
  • Several Photos
  • Photo Paper
  • Computer
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Color Printer
  • Glue Sticks

To get photos, ask for assistance from friends and family regarding the patient's favorite things. Facebook is a great resource if you can get access to the patient's page. You can use it to find a list of their favorite things, like movies, books, and special interests, and you can even use Facebook to reach out to the patient's friends to ask for information that may be helpful.

Ideas for photos: Favorite foods, drinks, restaurants, color, pet, house where the patient lives, schools the patient has attended and/or currently attend, workplace, favorite sports teams, sports or clubs that the patient is involved with, family members and friends.

You can easily find clip art photos of schools, work places, sports teams, and restaurants on the Internet.
