Tangle Jr 4 Combo- Original-Metallic-Textured-FuzzyToys For Alzheimer’s Patients Can Help Both The Afflicted And Their Caregiver
One of the toughest jobs any caregiver can take on is caring for someone with Alzheimer’s. I was lucky in that my own darling Mom, Gertie, was mostly mentally clear until she was just a few weeks prior to death at the tender age of 95. Other caregivers I am friends with don’t have it as easy – they’re caring for those with Alzheimer’s.
A frequent problem that is associated with those with Alzheimer’s is keeping those folks occupied – Alzheimer patients tend to be fidgety. It seems though that if their hands are busy, their minds are engaged. I’ve written another post about activity centers for those with Alzheimer’s which includes lap buddies – these are fuzzy animals that have zippers, ropes, and other tactical items that keep an Alzheimer patient’s hands busy. This kind of activity also tends to calm their racing minds.
So, going one further, I started checking into other toys for those with Alzheimer’s. I was surprised to find that there are many ways to keep these forgetful senior citizens happy and contented to be in one spot.
Note: I just found this great Alzheimer’s radio on Amazon.com. Even those with advanced dementia love music; this radio lets they play it themselves with just one ‘button.’
