Bring in the summer vibes with our new Activity Apron. Designed especially for people living with a dementia like Alzheimer's. The Apron will provide tactile and sensory stimulation, keeping restless hands busy. Five tactile attachments to touch, slide, zip, loop, plait, twist etc.
- Have a safe 'baking' session. Provide some salt dough and cookie cutters for the person to enjoy moulding and cutting shapes. Place them on a baking tray and later provide some real cookies to enjoy. Great tactile fun for all abilities.
- Ask the person wearing the apron to close their eyes and feel one or two of the attachments and say what it feels like (soft, round, silky) and what else can they think of that feels similar. Where would they see an item like this.
- Look through some famous film star photographs - print a few out. Ask the person if they recognise anyone? Did they every see a film starring them? Who would they most like to have a photo of in their apron pocket? Put the photo in the pocket and talk about what it is about that person that they like (hair, way they dress, voice or personality). Try and find a DVD or clip of a film with that celebrity in to watch together and bring back more memories.
