UC Davis Hospice would greatly appreciate a donation of approximately 12 fidget quilts for hospice patients with Alzheimer's Disease.
A fidget quilt can help calm and reduce anxiety, as well as providing hours of stimulation. Studies in care homes have shown that busy blankets that have embellishments such as zippers, loops, buttons, and laces are beneficial because they can be constantly played with.
For over 35 years, UC Davis Hospice Program provides care for terminally ill patients. It is not a place, but rather an approach to health care emphasizing symptom management while helping patients and families to cope with psychosocial and spiritual issues which accompany the dying process.
Hospice care is provided by physician-directed teams of nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, therapists, volunteers, and bereavement coordinators who are sensitive to the local population's cultural and lifestyle diversity. Volunteers become an important part of the team, with the ability to attend rounds and care for patients as well as their families.
