The benefits of fidget objects for seniors with dementia
Many individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia show anxiety or agitation through their hands. They may begin to fidget, pull at clothes or blankets, wring their hands, or rub their hands together.
Our fidget mats are one way to help restore calm.
Our mats and rings contain a variety of items and textures for sensory stimulation. Some include zippers, buttons, buckles, ribbon, velour, faux fur, fleece, etc.
