Helen one of our residents here at Wheatland's Care Home is modeling a new hand crafted activity apron which was made by our lovely carer Maria.

Dementia aid

These aprons were crafted to help encourage and stimulate activity for residents living with dementia. These act in similar fasion to 'fiddle cushions' and are designed to provide a sensory experience to help aid comfort and can be a key to allieviating stress and discomfort in residents.

Crafts in our home

Our carers feel this has been a big success and can see the difference in residents that have been wearing the aprons. We are now working on crafting more activities and are looking forward to getting our creative minds working on other projects.
