Designed by Activities to Share and handmade in England, we are very proud to introduce our unique Activity Blanket for people with dementia. It has been thoroughly tried and tested by people with a dementia like Alzheimer's so we can be sure that it's popular, appropriate and practical.
People with a dementia often have restless hands and like to have something to keep their hands occupied. This blanket not only keeps hands busy, it provides a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation and at the same time keeping knees snug and warm.
Ideal for older people living in care homes, patients in hospital and makes a great gift for an older family member with dementia living in their own home.
The blanket base is made from a high quality dark coloured fleece measuring approx 70cm x 60cm.
Features include: a centre plastic pouch /pocket for a favourite photo; a hand sized pocket with detachable mini cushion; s sturdy zip; three silk ribbons; a three bright buttoned flap; a buckle; 3 tactile fabric swatches; 4 rows of coloured plastic beads threaded and edged with tassles and three strong laces edged with felt.
