Crafted comfort for people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Fidget Blanket ~ Autumn
“Life is like a tapestry, woven from memories of people and events. Your unique tapestry reminds you of who you are, where you've been and what you've done.”
Sadly, Alzheimer's disease gradually takes these memories.
As loved ones’ age, it becomes increasingly important that they live in the present, in a way that preserves the essence of who they are. Providing elders with comfort, warmth and activity improves quality of life and helps them to relax and enjoy treasured memories of a life lived to the fullest.
This 24” lap blanket is light, warm and comforting backed with fleece material. The colours and photos are reminiscent of autumn days in the garden or the countryside. The print used on this blanket is by the wildlife artist Pollyanna Pickering, I have transferred it onto cotton and appliqued it on to the quilt. I can personalize blankets by doing this with your own photos, you only need to email them to me.
There are some familiar items attached to fidget with such as a silk flower, a wooden peg, a small leather pocket with notebook, a soft rope and a zip. The center panel has a removeable red owl attached with velcro. The squares are of different textures and fabrics.
These memory support blankets can be personalized using your own photos of people, places or pets and will take approx 1 week to make up.
