Therapeutic
Patchwork Photo Memory Quilts

  • Enhances the quality of life

  • Provides gentle yet constant therapeutic stimulation of the mind and critical memories of loved ones.

"Your life is like a tapestry, woven from your memories of people and events. Some threads are dark, while others are bright. Your individual tapestry shines vividly in your mind, reminding you of who you are, where you've been and what you've done.  Alzheimer's disease gradually robs people of the memories that make up their tapestries. You can help mend these holes by creating a tangible repository of memories..."  Mayo Clinic

Special Alzheimer's Patient Therapeutic Quilts

Alzheimer's patients, particularly those in the more advanced stages can get quite tense and fidgety. To help relieve stress and tension in these special people, we have developed the touch quilt and the fidget quilt.  Both fill unique needs and help calm the user and can enhance the quality of life for both the patient and the caregiver.

Therapeutic Touch Quilts

This therapeutic, extremely tactile patchwork quilt features 8 different fabrics that provide a variety of kinesthetic experiences for the Alzheimer's patient. Whether it's the softly contoured corduroy or a delightful faux fur, this quilt will provide the kind of tactile stimulation that will calm and soothe your loved one. Plus, while it's keeping their nervous hands busy, it will also keep their legs warm. Great for anyone, this is a must for anyone with progressive dementia. 

Therapeutic Fidget Quilt

For the Alzheimer's patient who has a greater need for tactile involvement, we offer our version of the fidget quilt. This quilt is a handy 20" x 20" and is made from colorful flannel to entertain the eyes with a terrycloth backing for extra tactile stimulation.  Attached to the quilt are 8 buttons of various sizes to captivate the fingers and the eyes, a zipper along and two strips of cloth which can be tied or manipulated in a number of ways.  There's also a couple of yarn puff balls added to further engage the user.  Fidget quilts can be a God-send to a care giver while bringing significant relief to the patient through it's calming and soothing effect.
