Fidget Blankets for Dementia Patients

Guiding Light Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

Please help us bring comfort to our patients that are suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer's. Fidget blankets or busy blankets help to soothe patients by providing them with tactile stimulation that helps them keep their hands busy. These blankets have different textures and small items that are securely attached to the blanket that the patient can engage with such as zippers, buttons, rattles, soft little books, a tiny stuffed animal, ribbons, laces etc. The blanket is small about 2' x 2' in size and sits on the patients lap. If you would like to help with this opportunity, please reach out to Tammy Webb, VC @ 210.585.2335 or vc@guidinghospice.com for more information. Thank you for your consideration.

Description

Guiding Light Hospice is a non-denomination, registered, community based hospice care agency licensed by State of Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) and Medicare (CMS) and Accredited by Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP).

The diagnosis of a life limiting illness causes immeasurable emotional distress for patients and their loved ones. The pain and symptoms associated with these conditions can become unbearable and decisions about care and treatment are often overwhelming and difficult to make. Guiding Light Hospice provides hospice care and other related services to assist families dealing with these tough times in the Greater San Antonio area.
