Having worked with a number of dementia patients I know of how agitated they can become without a focus, and a fiddle mat can be a welcome distraction providing sensory, tactile and visual stimulation which helps to reduce anxiety and agitation. Repetitive movements, such as stroking a smooth or soft fabric can give a sense of comfort and sooth and focus them.
With bright and cheerful colours, this activity lap quilt has activities such as different textures, a pocket with mini fidget toy, sequin fabric, netting with beads and a ring, fabric tags, beads on elastic and buttons. It measures 39 x 40cm
the ideal gift for an older friend or relation who may suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s.
