~ Alzheimer's and Memories ~ Life's Journey
“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 Memory Support Blanket is general, depicting events from an era when they were young. Photos cover many aspects of life from going out to work, sport, marriage, family etc.. These photos provide a point of contact and conversation where the recipient can reminisce. Other blankets can be personalized made using the persons own photographs. (Please contact for more information)
If you are caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s, you can help him or her cope with the onset of a memory loss by creating a tangible bank of memories. These blankets are 24" square and are backed with soft fleece. Ideal for use sitting out or in a wheelchair.
