When a person has dementia, they may become bewildered about their environmnet and sometimes become agitated. These quilts offer a focus, enabling the individual and their friends and carers to explore the quilt together. This aim is to maintain finger skills with buttons, zips, ribbons and Velcro
These are waist length aprons with pockets, items and fabrics attached that provide visual and tactile stimulation for those living with the later stages of dementia. There are instructions for Diffle Pinnies and a more male orientated Twiddle Apron.
These cute little creatures are requested by neonatal units to give to premature babies. The tentacles of the octopus remind tiny babies of the umbilical cord, which they would have been holding on to in the womb and this provides comfort and makes them feel safe
