Crafted comfort for people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Fidget Blanket ~ ' My Beautiful Horse'
“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 the outdoors in a woodland. A place that brings hope and light and often traveled through on horseback. The green and brown colors are restful and reminiscent of the light and shade in a woodland, or out in the countryside. There are some familiar items attached to handle and remind, such as 4 horse shoe nails bent and attached to chain links, a zip, a wooden ring and leather thongs with brass buckle pieces to remind of horse stirrups. There is also a photo of a horse appliqued to blanket.
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
