~ Alzheimer's and Memories ~
Holy Mary Blanket
“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 soft, light and comforting. It contains the words of two prayers, Hail Mary and The Prayer for the Sick, each with a pleasant background. There are two familiar pictures of Holy Mary. Some large pink flowers on pale coloured backgrounds surround the pictures. The back of this blanket is a soft pink fleece. Loop provided at top to hang quilt.
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.
