Benefits and use for people with a dementia

This DIY sensory blanket has been designed for use for people living with a dementia. Many people with a dementia, particularly those in later stages, can experience responsive actions which can appear as restlessness or agitation. In fact, people are seeking for meaningful engagement and activity. These items have been designed to support engagement and activity for people who find comfort in them. They can be used to stimulate discussion and reminiscence about the specific themes and items which are attached to the various soft apparel. Being busy and occupied is important for maintaining well-being and reduces the risk of expressions of ill-being. The sensory range of cushions and blankets whilst providing purpose and functionality provide an engagement of the persons senses and this in turn, supports wellness.
