This tender loving fidget quilt is made by Amber for her mom who has dementia. It is a work of love and labour.
Fidget quilts are used for dementia patients, giving them something to focus on and thereby providing a calming response for seniors 👨🏻🦳👵🏼 who are in distress due to dementia. Using buttons, zippers and laces will keep them busy and help maintain their fine motor skills👌. Colourful fabrics and prints can also help evoke fond memories.
