“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 lap blanket remembers Ireland as it was back then! There are 9 photos that were part of everyday life. Did you attend hurling finals in Croke Park? Did you cycle tyo the nearest phone box to make a date to listen to Elvis?!?
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 26" square and are backed with soft fleece. Ideal for use sitting out or in a wheelchair.
