If you have a loved one or know someone that has been touched by dementia or Alzheimer’s, you know it can be difficult to see that personal struggle.
One unique and surprisingly helpful valuable tool for the patient is therapeutic fidget quilts.
We will look at what a fidget lap blanket is and its benefits.
We will also look at nine compelling examples of these extraordinary creations.
What Is a Fidget Quilt?
Fidget quilts are essentially a quilt (or blanket) that has several different moveable accessories that someone can enjoy.
For example, a fidget blanket for Alzheimer’s will have zippers, buttons, velcroed toys that they can move, snaps, ribbons, different types of fabrics, and other notions.
What Size Should a Fidget Quilt Be?
A fidget blanket only needs to be a small “mini” quilt. There is no right or wrong size, but it would be most helpful if it could fit on someone’s lap. You can also add two straps to either side of the blanket to make an apron that the recipient can tie around their waist and carry.
