Sadly, Alzheimer's disease gradually takes ones 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.
At The Owl Tree we have created a range of gifts that we hope will provide crafted comfort for people with Alzheimer's disease. These can be personalized using your own photographs.
