I think my Dad's lifetime affinity for fixing things now makes him want to take things apart, then he messes them up, rendering them unusable. He has taken apart several clocks that now don't work. He's in a nursing home and we had family pictures on the wall. He started taking apart the picture frames and ended up cutting his hand.
I'm wondering if there are possibly toys I could get him to satisfy his desire to take things apart and put them back together - like Legos, Tinker Toys, or something of that nature. Any suggestions?
