Crafted comfort for people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Fidget Blanket ~ Shades of lavender
“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 hazy days in the summertime when many flowers are in bloom. Included on this blanket are fidget items such as a zip, wooden peg with ribbon, chain, a wooden heart and soft ball attached by velcro. The center panel has the lovely Alfred Tennyson saying ' If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever' How many of us can identify with this sentiment especially when someone dear is unwell. Some of the fidget items may be familiar and will also stimulate conversation as well as restless hands. A number of different textured fabrics have been used.
All of these fidget blankets can be customized using your own photos of people, places or pets. All that is required is a copy of the photo be scanned to me, and the fidget blanket then becomes a blanket of memories as well.
Custom blankets will take approx 1 week to make up.
