Do you belong to a group that enjoys providing a service to individuals in need or are you an individual that wants to give back? Amedisys Hospice is in need of fidget blankets and/or sensory toys. Seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia may show anxiety or agitation through fidgety hands. Signs include pulling or rubbing at clothes or bedding, rubbing hands together, twisting fingers, wringing hands, and generally keeping hands in motion. Sensory therapy or fidget toys are an effective way to reduce anxiety, calm nerves, and provide comfort. These are simple touch-based activities that help someone with Alzheimer’s keep hands busy in safe, soothing ways. If you are interested in making these items and donating them to our patients, please contact Leah. There is no greater deed on earth then to give unselfishly of yourself.
