Fidget quilts, activity blankets and sensory mats are designed to help people with Alzheimer's, dementia, autism, and other cognitive challenges such as those who have had a stroke or illness. They help keep fingers busy and minds focused. They can be soothing or exhilarating just by the touch of the material or the items attached. They might help someone remember how to tie a bow, close a button or buckle a belt.
Artisan Mind is in partnership with Sage Eldercare Solutions, more specifically a program called, The Hummingbird Project.***
